Hi Cuong,

I don't think this is possible at table-level, but if you base a form on the respective table, you can set the controlsource to
= Hex([YourDecimalField])
to get the desired hexadecimal value.
Another option is to update the hexadecimal field in the after-update event of the decimal field (works with the same Hex function).
Hope this helps,

What is the database?  Do you intend to store the hex value as a string, otherwise, binary=hex=octal=decimal.

Sorry, I know it's Access, but I meant to ask what version.
