How to convert a hexadecimal value to decimal value in Sql Server 2008

Hello all,

I am having a tough time trying to complete a task and all searches give a few examples but not exactly what I need.

FileName      FileContent
64191           'Some content from file'
49612            'Some content from file'

When I use a scentific calculator or go to a site like   http://www.easycalculation.com/hex-converter.php and input my files above in the hexa section 64191 it converts to decimal 410001 and 49612 converts to decimal 300562.

I need to be able to create a new row in the table above that will give the hexa filename; converted decimal filename; with its file content.

Please help and if I am not explaining this correctly I tried to give what I am after.

This page has a function for converting from any base (between 2 and 32) to decimal:

You can use it as is, or hard-code it to convert from base 16.

Thanks much Paulmacd this did do the trick for me. I did have to change the base to get the value but it is all well now.  Thanks for the quick answer.
