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

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

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