Change a Decimal based number to a Binary Number without using the Excel Object

Excel offers the functions, but who wants to add the Excel object model to their project? One simple way is to use the OCT command and a little conversion to change Decimal based code to Binary.
Public Function ToBinary(ByVal lngDecimalNumber As Long) As String
    Dim strDecimalNumber            As String
    Dim strReturnValue              As String
    Dim strBinValue                 As String
    Dim lngStringLength             As Long
    Dim lngIndex                    As Long
    strDecimalNumber = Oct(lngDecimalNumber)
    lngStringLength = Len(strDecimalNumber)
    For lngIndex = 1 To lngStringLength
        Select Case Mid$(strDecimalNumber, lngIndex, 1)
        Case 0
            strBinValue =
