In the PROMOTIC system it is better to use the Pm.StringFormat method.
n = Oct(number)
|number||(Long) Any valid numeric expression.|
If number is not already a integer, then it is rounded to the nearest integer before being evaluated.
|If number is||function returns|
|Any other number||up to 11 octal characters|
Octal numbers can be entered directly by preceding numbers in the proper range with &O. For example, &O10 is the octal notation for decimal 8.
sOct = Oct(4) 'Returns "4"
sOct = Oct(10) 'Returns "10"
sOct = Oct(459) 'Returns "713"
