num-hex-digits is the number of digits to display. If omitted, the function will use the minimum number.

Note: if the argument is not recognised as an octal number, or contains more than 10 characters, or the resulting binary number requires more digits than you specified, or the specified num-hex-digits number is less than or equal to 0, the function will return the #NUM! error.
