String literal reference example:

D code

derive type:single value:EXACT('a','a') as:'stringExactCompare'

Output: Generates true in the new column stringExactCompare, since the values are identical.

String literal reference example:

D code

derive type:single value:EXACT('a','A') as:'stringExactCompare'

Output: Generates false in the new column stringExactCompare, since the capitalization is different between the two strings.

Column reference example:

D code

derive type:single value:EXACT(string1,string2) as:'stringExactCompare'

Output: Generates a new stringExactCompare column containing the evaluation of string1 column values being exact matches with the corresponding string2 column values.
