DEC2HEX

The DEC2HEX function converts a decimal number to signed hexadecimal format.

Sample Usage

DEC2HEX(100,8)

DEC2HEX(A2)

Syntax

DEC2HEX(decimal_number, [significant_digits])

  • decimal_number - The decimal value to be converted to signed hexadecimal, provided as a string.

    • For this function, this value has a maximum of 549755813887 if positive, and a minimum of -549755814888 if negative.

    • If decimal_number is provided as a valid decimal number, it will automatically be converted to the appropriate string input. For example, DEC2HEX(100) and DEC2HEX("100") yield the same result: 64.

  • significant_digits - [ OPTIONAL ] - The number of significant digits to ensure in the result.

    • If this is greater than the number of significant digits in the result, the result is left-padded with zeros until the total number of digits reaches significant_digits.

    • This value is ignored if decimal_number is negative.

Notes

  • If the number of digits required is greater than the specified significant_digits, the #NUM! error is returned.
  • Ensure that any calculations using the result of DEC2HEX take into account that it is in hexadecimal. Results will be silently converted by Google Sheets; thus if cell A2 contains 100, the hexadecimal equivalent of the decimal value 256, and B2 contains a formula such as =A2+20, the result will be 120, which is incorrect in hexadecimal calculation.
