1. I know you can create a DEC2HEX formula.
I wanted to convert Hex to Ascii.

When I use HEX2DEC, it puts the ASCII number instead of the actual character.

For instance, if I put the HEX number 4A in Cell A1, I want Cell A2 to display a capital J instead of the number 74 which is J in ASCII.

2. =CHAR(HEX2DEC("4A"))

Hey there,

I just thought I would add this - I have 32 bit HEX that I needed to conver to ASCII so just took this a bit further. If you have less than 32 BIT HEX, it will error, just use less of the code:

=CONCATENATE((CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,1,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,3,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,5,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2 ,7,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,9,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,11,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,13,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,1 5,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,17,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,19,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,21,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,2 3,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,25,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,27,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,29,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,3 1,2)))))

This is for 16 bit data HEX to ASCII

=CONCATENATE((CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,1,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,3,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,5,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2 ,7,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,9,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,11,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,13,2)))),(CHAR(HEX2DEC(MID(A2,1 5,2)))))

Does this work? I am in a bit of a rush, but thought that might do it?

=CHAR(DEC2HEX("4A"))

=CONCATENATE((CHAR(DEC2HEX(MID(A2,1,2)))),(CHAR(DEC2HEX(MID(A2,3,2)))),
