# BIN2HEX

### Definition of BIN2HEX

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 hexademical, 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; 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.
