OCT2DEC

The OCT2DEC function converts a signed octal number to decimal format.

Sample Usage

OCT2DEC(37)

OCT2DEC(A2)

Syntax

OCT2DEC(signed_octal_number)

  • signed_octal_number - The signed 30-bit octal value to be converted to decimal, 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 3777777777 if positive, and a minimum of 4000000000 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, OCT2DEC(177) and OCT2DEC("177") yield the same result: 127.

Notes

  • As with any octal value, only the digits 0-7 are valid. Digits outside of this will cause OCT2DEC to return a #NUM! error.
