Used to divide two numbers and return a floating-point result.
result = number1 / number2
/ operator syntax has these parts:
|result||Required; any numeric variable.|
|number1||Required; any numeric expression.|
|number2||Required; any numeric expression.|
The data type of result is usually a Double or a Double variant. The following are exceptions to this rule:
|If||Then result is|
|Both expressions are Byte, Integer, or Single expressions||A Single unless it overflows its legal range, in which case, an error occurs.|
|Both expressions are Byte, Integer, or Single variants||A Single variant unless it overflows its legal range, in which case, result is a Variant containing a Double.|
|Division involves a Decimal and any other data type||A Decimal data type.|
If one or both expressions are Null expressions, result is Null. Any expression that is Empty is treated as 0.
This example uses the
/ operator to perform floating-point division.
Dim MyValue MyValue = 10 / 4 ' Returns 2.5. MyValue = 10 / 3 ' Returns 3.333333.
