BIN2OCT Function

The BIN2OCT function is one of the engineering functions. It is used to convert a binary number into an octal number.

The BIN2OCT function syntax is:

BIN2OCT(number [, num-hex-digits])


number is a binary number entered manually or included into the cell you make reference to.

num-hex-digits is the number of digits to display. If omitted, the function will use the minimum number.

Note: if the argument is not recognised as a binary number, or contains more than 10 characters, or the resulting octal number requires more digits than you specified, or the specified num-hex-digits number is less than or equal to 0, the function will return the #NUM! error.

To apply the BIN2OCT function,

  1. select the cell where you wish to display the result,
  2. click the Insert function
    icon situated at the top toolbar,
    or right-click within a selected cell and select the Insert Function option from the menu,
    or click the
    icon situated at the formula bar,
  3. select the Engineering function group from the list,
  4. click the BIN2OCT function,
  5. enter the required arguments separating them by commas,
  6. press the Enter button.

The result will be displayed in the selected cell.
