LSN Convert

CREATE FUNCTION dbo.fn_convertnumericlsntobinary(
@numericlsn numeric(25,0)
) returns binary(10)
-- Declare components to be one step larger than the intended type
-- to avoid sign overflow problems. For example, convert(smallint, convert(numeric(25,0),65535)) will fail but convert(binary(2),
-- convert(int,convert(numeric(25,0),65535))) will give the
-- intended result of 0xffff.
declare @high4bytelsncomponent bigint,
@mid4bytelsncomponent bigint,
@low2bytelsncomponent int
select @high4bytelsncomponent = convert(bigint, floor(@numericlsn / 1000000000000000))
select @numericlsn = @numericlsn - convert(numeric(25,0), @high4bytelsncomponent) * 1000000000000000
select @mid4bytelsncomponent = convert(bigint,floor(@numericlsn / 100000))
select @numericlsn = @numericlsn - convert(numeric(25,0), @mid4bytelsncomponent) * 100000

    Can you please let me know if using this function will help any closer to converting fn_fbLog Log to datetime.
