Common Mistakes
BIN2DEC
not working? Here are some common mistakes people make when using the BIN2DEC
Google 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.
Missing argument
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.
Negative exponent
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.
Overflow error
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.
