OCT2BIN

The OCT2BIN function converts a signed octal number to signed binary format.

Sample Usage

OCT2BIN(37,8)

OCT2BIN(A2)

Syntax

OCT2BIN(signed_octal_number, [significant_digits])

  • signed_octal_number - The signed 30-bit octal value to be converted to signed binary, provided as a string.

    • The most significant bit of signed_octal_number is the sign bit; that is, negative numbers are represented in two's complement format.

    • For this function, this value has a maximum of 777 if positive, and a minimum of 7777777000 if negative.

    • If signed_octal_number is provided as a valid octal number, it will automatically be converted to the appropriate string input. For example, OCT2BIN(177) and OCT2BIN("177") yield the same result: 1111111.

  • 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 the most significant bit of signed_octal_number is 1; that is, if the expressed signed_octal_number is greater than or equal to 4000000000.

Notes

  • As with any octal value, only the digits 0-7 are valid. Digits outside of this will cause OCT2BIN to return a #NUM! error.

  • If the number of digits required is greater than the specified significant_digits, the #NUM! error is returned.
