Exponentiation Operator (^)


Raises a number to the power of an exponent.


result = number^exponent


  • result
    Any numeric variable.

  • number
    Any numeric expression.

  • exponent
    Any numeric expression.


Number can be negative only if exponent is an integer value. When more than one exponentiation is performed in a single expression, the ^ operator is evaluated as it is encountered from left to right.

If either number or exponent is a Null expression, result is also Null.
