# How to Use OCT2HEX in Google Sheets in 2020?

OCT2HEXThe OCT2HEX function converts a signed octal number to signed hexadecimal format.

Sample Usage

OCT2HEX(37,8)

OCT2HEX(A2)

Syntax

OCT2HEX(signed_octal_number, [significant_digits])

signed_octal_number – The signed 30-bit octal value to be converted to signed hexadecimal, 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, OCT2HEX(177) and OCT2HEX(“177”) yield the same result: 7F.

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 OCT2HEX to return a #NUM! error.

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