BASE


Returns a text representation of a number, in a specified base radix.

Syntax:

BASE(number, radix, minlength)

converts number (a positive integer) to text, with the base radix radix (an integer between 2 and 36), using characters 0-9 and A-Z.
minlength (optional) specifies the minimum number of characters returned; zeroes are added on the left if necessary.

Example:

BASE(17, 2)
returns 10001 as text (binary system).
BASE(17, 10)
returns 17 as text (decimal system).
BASE(255, 16, 4)
returns 00FF as text (hexadecimal system). Extra zeroes are added to give 4 characters.
ISTEXT(BASE(17, 10))
returns TRUE. Text is returned, not a number.
