Shifts a number right by the specified number of bits.
Returns a number shifted right by the specified number of bits.
Number is a positive integer less than 2 ^ 48 (281,474,976,710,656).
Shift is the number of positions the bits will be moved to the right. If shift is negative, it is synonymous with BITLSHIFT (Number; -Shift).
- If either argument is a decimal number then its floor value is considered.
- If Number is negative, the function returns an error value.
- Shifting a number right is equivalent to adding zeros (0) to the left of the binary representation of the number. For example, a 1-bit shift to the right on the decimal value 6 converts its binary value (0110) to 0011, or 3 in decimal.
- Using a negative number as the Shift argument shifts the number of bits to the left. Hence it will return the same result as a positive Shift argument for the BITLSHIFT function.
|=BITRSHIFT(15;3)||15 in binary is 1111 which when applied with right shift by 3-bit gives 0001 or (1111 >> 3 = 0001)||1 (0001)|
|=BITRSHIFT(6;-1)||6 in binary is 0110 which when applied with right shift by -1-bit gives 1100 which is equivalent to left shift by 1-bit or (0110 >> -1 = 1100)||12 (1100)|
|=BITRSHIFT(15.123;3)||floor of 15.123 is taken so 15 in binary is 1111 which when applied with right shift by 3-bit gives 0001 or (1111 >> 3 = 0001)||1 (0001)|
|=BITRSHIFT(15;3.7)||15 in binary is 1111 which when applied with right shift by 3-bit(floor of 3.7 is considered) gives 0001 or (1111 >> 3 = 0001)||1 (0001)|
|=BITRSHIFT(-15;3)||Number is negative so function returns error value||Err:502|
