DECIMAL function

The DECIMAL function converts the text representation of a number in another base, to base 10 (decimal).

Parts of a DECIMAL formula

DECIMAL(value, base)

Part Description Notes
value The unsigned value to be converted to decimal, provided as a string.  
base The base (or radix) to convert the number into. The base is an integer from 2 to 36.

Sample formula

DECIMAL(101,2)

Notes

  • The string representation of the value is used, which should only contain numeric characters (i.e. scientific notation isn't permitted). The text of a string should be no longer than 255 characters.
  • The DECIMAL function only converts to positive integers.
