>Greater than--binary (Relational) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------Syntax<exp1> > <exp2>TypeCharacter, date, logical, memo, numericOperands<exp1>and<exp2>are expressions of any type to be compared.DescriptionThe greater than (>) operator compares two values of the same data type and returns true (.T.) if <exp1> is greater than <exp2>.. Character:The comparison is based on the underlying ASCII code. ASCII codes for alphabetic characters are ascending (e.g., the code for "A" is 65 and the code for "Z" is 90).. Date:Dates are compared according to the underlying date value.. Logical:True (.T.) is greater than false (.F.).. Memo:Treated the same as character.. Numeric:Compared based on magnitude.Examples.These examples illustrate how the greater than operator (>) behaves with different data types: // Character ? "Z" > "A" // Result: .T. ? "AZ" > "A" // Result: .F. ? "A" > "AZ" // Result: .F. // Date ? CTOD("12/12/88") > ; CTOD("12/11/88") // Result: .T. // Logical ? .T. > .F. // Result: .T. // Numeric ? 2 > 1 // Result: .T. ? 1 > 2 // Result: .F.
