HEX2DEC

The HEX2DEC function converts a signed hexadecimal number to decimal format.

Sample Usage

HEX2DEC("f3")

HEX2DEC(A2)

Syntax

HEX2DEC(signed_hexadecimal_number)

  • signed_hexadecimal_number - The signed 40-bit hexadecimal value to be converted to decimal, provided as a string.

    • The most significant bit of signed_hexadecimal_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 7fffffffff if positive, and a minimum of 8000000000 if negative.

    • If signed_hexadecimal_number is provided as a valid hexadecimal number, it will automatically be converted to the appropriate string input. For example, HEX2DEC(199) and HEX2DEC("199") yield the same result: 409.

Notes

  • As with any hexadecimal value, only the digits 0-9 and the letters A-F are valid. Digits other than these will cause HEX2DEC to return a #NUM! error.

    • Hexadecimal digits are not case-sensitive; a-f and A-F are equivalent.
