This custom function requires my other function, listed here only for convenience:

Dec2HexNoLeading0s ( theNumber )
Let (

// get the hex digit for the least significant nibble (4 bits)
thisNibble = Middle ( "0123456789ABCDEF" ; Mod (theNumber ; 16) + 1 ; 1 ) ;

// see if theNumber passed is bigger than a nibble, if so recurse to process the more significant nibbles
If ( theNumber < 16 ;
"" ; // blank means we're not adding any extra
Dec2HexNoLeading0s ( Int ( theNumber / 16 ) ) // add the more significant nibbles
) &
thisNibble // always return the least significant nibble
