BIN2DEC

Converts a binary number to decimal.

This function is only available if the Analysis AddIn is installed.

Syntax:

BIN2DEC(binarynumber)

returns a (decimal) number, given binarynumber, which may be text, or a number containing only digits 1 and 0 (thus the number appears to be binary although it is not).
binarynumber may have up to ten bits in two's complement representation; positive numbers are 0 to 111111111 (nine bits representing 0 to 511 decimal) and negative numbers 1111111111 to 1000000000 (ten bits representing -1 to -512 decimal)

Example:

BIN2DEC("110")

returns 6 as a number.

BIN2DEC(110)

returns 6. The number 110 has only 1 and 0 digits, and may be read as binary.

BIN2DEC("1111111110")

returns -2.
