Used to divide two numbers and return an integer result.
result = number1 \ number2
\ operator syntax has these parts:
|result||Required; any numeric variable.|
|number1||Required; any numeric expression.|
|number2||Required; any numeric expression.|
Before division is performed, the numeric expressions are rounded to Byte, Integer, or Long expressions.
Usually, the data type of result is a Byte, Byte variant, Integer, Integer variant, Long, or Long variant, regardless of whether result is a whole number.
Any fractional portion is truncated. However, if any expression is Null, result is Null. Any expression that is Empty is treated as 0.
This example uses the
\ operator to perform integer division.
Dim MyValue MyValue = 11 \ 4 ' Returns 2. MyValue = 9 \ 3 ' Returns 3. MyValue = 100 \ 3 ' Returns 33.
