VBA Comparison Operators

Author: don

VBA comparison operators are used to compare values in VBA and Macros for Excel.

List of VBA Comparison Operators

Comparison Operator

Meaning

<

A < B - Checks if A is LESS THAN B.

>

A > B - Checks if A is GREATER THAN B.

<=

A <= B - Checks if A is less than or equal to B.

>=

A >= B - Checks if A is greater than or equal to B.

=

A = B - Checks if A is equal to B. Note that a single equal sign is also used to assign a value to a variable when it is not being used in the context of a comparison.

<>

A <> B - Checks if A is NOT equal to B.

Comparison Operator Examples

Each example uses an IF statement to compare the values A and B and it will then output a message depending on the result of the comparison.

The part to pay attention to comes between the If and Then section of the code.

A < B

If A is less than B.

If A < B Then MsgBox "Hi!" Else MsgBox "Bye!"
