Description

 

Performs a logical exclusion operation on two Boolean expressions, or a bitwise exclusion on two numeric expressions.

 

Syntax

 

result = expression1 XOR expression2

 

The XOR operator syntax has these parts:

 

PartDescription
resultAny numeric variable.
expression1Any expression.
expression2Any expression.

 

Returns

 

Number

 

Remarks

 

For Boolean comparisons, if one and only one of the expressions evaluates to True, result is True. Otherwise, result is False.

 

If expression1 is

And expression2 is

The result is

True

True

False

For numeric expressions, the Xor operator performs as a bitwise operator. A bitwise comparison of two expressions using exclusive-or logic to form the result, as shown in the following table:
