BIN2HEX

The BIN2HEX function converts a signed binary number to signed hexadecimal format.

Sample Usage

BIN2HEX(101,8)

BIN2HEX(A2)

Syntax

BIN2HEX(signed_binary_number, [significant_digits])

  • signed_binary_number - The signed 10-bit binary value to be converted to signed hexadecimal, provided as a string.

    • The most significant bit of signed_binary_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 0111111111 if positive, and a minimum of 1000000000 if negative.

    • If signed_binary_number is provided as a valid binary number, it will automatically be converted to the appropriate string input. For example, BIN2HEX(11111) and BIN2HEX("11111") yield the same result: 1F.

  • 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. For example, BIN2HEX("11111",8) yields the value 0000001F.

    • This value is ignored if the most significant bit of signed_binary_number is 1; that is, if the expressed signed_binary_number is greater than or equal to 1000000000.

Notes

  • As with any binary value, only the digits 0 and 1 are valid. Digits other than these will cause BIN2HEX to return a #NUM! error.

  • 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 BIN2HEX take into account that it is in hexadecimal. In particular, results which do not contain non-decimal digits (A-F) will be silently converted by Google Sheets; thus if cell A2 contains 111, the hexadecimal equivalent of binary 100010001, and B2 contains a formula such as =A2+9, the result will be 120, which is incorrect in hex calculation.
