If I get you right, First you have to convert a string to a decimal, then from decimal to hexadecimal, binary or octal.
First, you can convert to decimal by using CLng(YourString),  then uses Hex or Oct function to convert hexadecimal or octal as followed:
Dim MyLong as Long
Dim MyStr as string
      MyLong=cLng(YourString)
      MyStr = Hex(MyLong)      'Or to convert to Octal
      MyStr = Oct(MyLong)     'Oct and Hex return a string representation of an octal or hexadecima number
For more information see also help in VB under Oct, Hex, CLng.
Hope this answered your question.
One more thing there is no direct way to convert a number into a binary string representation.
