STRCOMP(string1, string2 [,compare])

Returns the result of a string comparison (Integer).


string1The first text string (String).
string2The second text string (String).
compare(Optional) A vbCompareMethod constant specifying the type of string comparison to use (Integer):
-1 = vbUseCompareOption (uses the "Option Compare" setting)
0 = vbBinaryCompare (default, case sensitive)
1 = vbTextCompare (not case sensitive)
2 = vbDatabaseCompare (uses an Access database)

REMARKS
* This function is case sensitive (by default).
* The value returned is -1 when "string1" is less than "string2".
* The value returned is 0 when "string1" is equal to "string2".
* The value returned is 1 when "string1" is greater than "string2".
* The value returned is Null if either "string1" or "string2" is Null.
* If "compare" is left blank, then -1 is used. If there is no Option Compare statement provided then vbBinaryCompare (0) is used.
* If "compare" is Null, then an error occurs.
* You can use the STRCOMP$ function to return a String data type instead of Variant/String data type.
* If you type in STRCOMP$ with valid arguments the editor will automatically change this function to just STRCOMP.
* The equivalent .NET function is Microsoft.VisualBasic.Strings.StrComp
