Simple Problem ??

it seems I have a simple problem, but I cannot find a (simple)solution:

if I type 2^^1000111 mathematica calculates the correct dec. number

but if I type: base=2; number=1000111; base^^number  all I get is a error
message ???

So a function Convert[number_,base_] for base convertions cannot work ...
Any ideas
