# FROMBASETEN

You can use FROMBASETEN when you need to convert numbers to a base other than 10.

The FROMBASETEN function converts an integer to a text item that can be interpreted as a number, using positional notation of the base specified.

- Syntax:
- FROMBASETEN (single-integer-expression, single-integer-expression)
- Meaning:
- FROMBASETEN (positive_integer_to_convert, base_to_convert_to)
- Returns:
- A single text item

FROMBASETEN returns
a text item that results from converting `positive_integer_to_convert` to
a text item that can be interpreted as a number using positional notation
of the base specified by `base_to_convert_to`.

If `base_to_convert_to` is less than
2 or greater than 36, FROMBASETEN evaluates to
"none"**.** Resulting text item characters A-Z are interpreted
as digits having decimal values from 10-35, respectively. The characters
returned are uppercase.
