OCT2HEX function
Converts an octal number to hexadecimal.
Syntax
OCT2HEX(number,places)
Number is the octal number you want to convert. Number may not contain more than 10 octal characters (30 bits). The most significant bit of number is the sign bit. The remaining 29 bits are magnitude bits. Negative numbers are represented using two'scomplement notation.
Places is the number of characters to use. If places is omitted, OCT2HEX uses the minimum number of characters necessary. Places is useful for padding the return value with leading 0s (zeros).
Remarks

If number is negative, OCT2HEX ignores places and returns a 10character hexadecimal number.

If number is not a valid octal number, OCT2HEX returns the #NUM! error value.

If OCT2HEX requires more than places characters, it returns the #NUM! error value.

If places is not an integer, it is truncated.

If places is nonnumeric, OCT2HEX returns the #VALUE! error value.

If places is negative, OCT2HEX returns the #NUM! error value.
