Returns a Variant (String) representing the octal value of a number.
The required number argument is any valid numeric expression or string expression.
If number is not already a whole number, it is rounded to the nearest whole number before being evaluated.
|If number is||Oct returns|
|Any other number||Up to 11 octal characters|
You can represent octal numbers directly by preceding numbers in the proper range with
&O. For example,
&O10 is the octal notation for decimal 8.
This example uses the Oct function to return the octal value of a number.
Dim MyOct MyOct = Oct(4) ' Returns 4. MyOct = Oct(8) ' Returns 10. MyOct = Oct(459) ' Returns 713.
