Well, you "rewrote it as a function", except that you didn't. The
difference between subroutines and functions (at least in Basic), is that
functions returns something. Yours don't, as far as I can see.
To return a value in Basic (at least LibreOffice Basic), you just set a
value to the function itself:
I'm not sure what those eight digit numbers you are looking for are. Is it
something like b+g×2⁸+r×2¹⁶?
