Is there any function in SPARQL that converts from HEX to Decimal format? If not, is there any other way we can do this?

There's no standard SPARQL function that will take a string that represents a number in hex and convert it to a string in decimal notation (or, for that matter, to an xsd:integer). I don't believe you could compose such a function using standard SPARQL built-in functions, either, as you'd need to loop over the characters in the hex representation to do the conversion and there's no looping/mapping standard function in SPARQL.

So, you could write your own custom function if your implementation supports it (as per your other question).
