D toc
Excerpt

Returns true if the first argument is not equal to the second argument. Equivalent to the <> or != operator.

  • Each argument can be a literal String, Integer or Decimal number, a function, or a column reference.

Since the function returns a Boolean value, it can be used as a function or a conditional.

Info

NOTE: Within an expression, you might choose to use the corresponding operator, instead of this function. For more information, see Comparison Operators.
