Returns a string that represents the octal value of a number. In the PROMOTIC system it is better to use the Pm.StringFormat method.
String Oct(Long 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.

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.
