Convert CMYK tot Pantone easily in Illustrator

This might be something everyone knows but me until today. But I´d like to share it anyway.

I recieved a logo in CMYK and had to convert it to Pantone colors in order to save money on printing and being more accurate color wise. I was browsing my Pantone color books for a while and decided that there had to be an easier way to do it.

In Illustrator open your file containing the logo (in this case a 2 colored logo) mark it and choose Edit > Edit colors > Recolor with preset > 2 color job. Choose your prefered Pantone color book.

Vectortuts even have a nifty little filmclip to make it eaven easier:
