The proc is not a part of SQL server per say but a recommended proc to show how these proceses work.  If you want to use it you must first compile it and a dependent proc yourself.  Past the following code into query analyzer, and run it:

--From the BOL . . .
CREATE PROCEDURE sp_hexadecimal
    @binvalue varbinary(255),
    @hexvalue varchar(255) OUTPUT
DECLARE @charvalue varchar(255)
DECLARE @i int
DECLARE @length int
DECLARE @hexstring char(16)
SELECT @charvalue = '0x'
SELECT @i = 1
SELECT @length = DATALENGTH(@binvalue)
SELECT @hexstring = '0123456789abcdef'
WHILE (@i <= @length)
DECLARE @tempint int
DECLARE @firstint int
DECLARE @secondint int
SELECT @tempint = CONVERT(int, SUBSTRING(@binvalue,@i,1))
SELECT @firstint = FLOOR(@tempint/16)
SELECT @secondint = @tempint - (@firstint*16)
SELECT @charvalue = @charvalue +
SUBSTRING(@hexstring, @firstint+1, 1) +
SUBSTRING(@hexstring, @secondint+1, 1)
SELECT @i = @i + 1
SELECT @hexvalue = @charvalue

CREATE PROCEDURE sp_displayoaerrorinfo
    @object int,
    @hresult int
DECLARE @output varchar(255)
DECLARE @hrhex char(10)
DECLARE @hr int
DECLARE @source varchar(255)
DECLARE @description varchar(255)
PRINT 'OLE Automation Error Information'
EXEC sp_hexadecimal @hresult, @hrhex OUT
SELECT @output = '  HRESULT: ' + @hrhex
PRINT @output
EXEC @hr = sp_OAGetErrorInfo @object, @source OUT, @description OUT
IF @hr = 0
SELECT @output = '  Source: ' + @source
PRINT @output
SELECT @output = '  Description: ' + @description
PRINT @output
    PRINT ' sp_OAGetErrorInfo failed.'
