Description
=
Equals
Implies that the test result for Field A is the same as the test result for Field B. F or example, SUM(Field A) is the same as SUM(Field B).
<>
Does not equal
Implies that the test result for Field A is not the same as the test result for Field B.
<
Is less than
Implies that the test result for Field A is less than the test result for Field B.
<=
Is less than or equal to
Implies that the test result for Field A is less than or equal to the test result for Field B.
>
Is greater than
Implies that the test result for Field A is greater than the test result for Field B.
>=
Is greater than or equal to
Implies that the test result for Field A is greater than or equal to the test result for Field B.
Is approximately the same as
Implies that the test result for Field A is approximately the same as the test result for Field B. An approximate test must have a threshold value. You can use this operator with numeric datatypes only.
Data Validation Option compares string fields using an ASCII table.
