Opposite of Hex function?

Hello all!
I am wondering if there is any opposite of the Hex function?
Ex. Hex(255) returns FF.
Then should ThatFunction(FF) return 255!

   End If
   For i = Len(strIn) To 1 Step -1
      c = UCase(Mid$(Hex, i, 1))
      Select Case c
         Case "0" To "9"
            k = k + CLng(c) * 16 ^ j
         Case "A" To "F"
            k = k + (Asc(c) - 55) * 16 ^ j
         Case Else
            'Invalid character Error
            Exit Function
      End Select
      j = j + 1
   Next
   HexStringToDecimal = k

End Function
