Description

Arg1

Number - the octal number you want to convert. Number may not contain more than 10 octal characters (30 bits). The most significant bit of number is the sign bit. The remaining 29 bits are magnitude bits. Negative numbers are represented using two's-complement notation.

  • If OCT2HEX requires more than places characters, it returns the #NUM! error value.

  • If places is not an integer, it is truncated.

  • If places is nonnumeric, OCT2HEX returns the #VALUE! error value.

  • If places is negative, OCT2HEX returns the #NUM! error value.
