Returns a string representing the octal value of a number.


The number argument is any valid 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
Null Null.
Empty Zero (0).
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.

The following 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.
