### Definition of OCT2BIN

Converts a signed octal number to signed binary format.

OCT2BIN(37,8)

OCT2BIN(A2)

### Syntax

OCT2BIN(signed_octal_number, [significant_digits])

• xsigned_octal_number - The signed 30-bit octal value to be converted to signed binary, provided as a string.

• The most significant bit of signed_octal_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 777 if positive, and a minimum of 7777777000 if negative.

• If signed_octal_number is provided as a valid octal number, it will automatically be converted to the appropriate string input. For example, OCT2BIN(177) and OCT2BIN("177") yield the same result:1111111.

• 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.

• This value is ignored if the most significant bit of signed_octal_number is 1; that is, if the expressed signed_octal_number is greater than or equal to 4000000000.

### Notes

• As with any octal value, only the digits 0-7 are valid. Digits outside of this will cause OCT2BIN to return a #NUM! error.

• If the number of digits required is greater than the specified significant_digits, the #NUM! error is returned.
