M S Pease,

Converts a decimal number to its binary equivalent.

Sample Input:
Dec2Bin9 ( 511 )
Sample Output:
111111111


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

Non-recursive function to convert a decimal number to its binary equivalent, currently to 9 places (decimal 511 max).

The other "Dec2Bin" custom function didn't work for me, so I formulated this version. It is very simple to edit this function to accommodate larger decimal inputs, or limit it to smaller inputs. I needed nine binary places, so this is the result, named "Dec2Bin9".

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

It is very simple to construct a function to accommodate ANY decimal input:

DecToBin ( decimal )

Let ( [
next = Div ( decimal ; 2 )
] ;
Case ( next ; DecToBin ( next ) )
&
Mod ( decimal ; 2 )
)
