BIN2DEC formula with the syntax shown below, it has 1 required parameter:
- signed_binary_number (required):
The signed binary number that you want to convert to decimal. This must be a string that contains no more than 10 characters. The leftmost character is the sign bit, with 0 indicating a positive number and 1 indicating a negative number.

Converting binary numbers to decimal
You can use the
BIN2DEC formula to convert binary numbers to decimal. This is useful for working with binary data in engineering and computer science applications.
Working with signed binary numbers
BIN2DEC formula is particularly useful for working with signed binary numbers, which are commonly used in computer science and engineering applications.
BIN2DECnot working? Here are some common mistakes people make when using the
BIN2DECGoogle Sheets Formula:
Invalid binary number
The input must be a valid signed binary number. Make sure the input contains only 0s and 1s and starts with a minus sign (-) if it is negative.
The BIN2DEC function requires one argument. Make sure you are providing a valid signed binary number as input.
Invalid data type
The input must be a valid signed binary number. Make sure the input is formatted as text or a number.
If the input contains a negative exponent, the result may be inaccurate. Consider using a different formula for converting binary to decimal in this case.
If the input is too large, the function may return an error or an incorrect result. Consider using a different formula or breaking the input into smaller chunks.
The following functions are similar to
BIN2DEC or are often used with it in a formula:
DEC2BINformula is used to convert a decimal number to a binary number. This is commonly used in engineering and computer science to represent numbers in their binary form. The formula takes in a decimal number and an optional number of significant digits to include in the binary representation.
HEX2DECfunction converts a signed hexadecimal number to its decimal equivalent. This function is commonly used in engineering calculations where hexadecimal numbers are used to represent signed values.
OCT2DECfunction converts a signed octal number to its decimal equivalent. It takes one required parameter, the signed_octal_number, which is the signed octal number you want to convert to decimal. The function returns the decimal equivalent of the signed octal number.
