exact() Function

Compares two given text strings in a case-sensitive manner, returning true only if they are exactly the same.

Syntax

exact( text1, text2 )

text1: (Text) One of two strings that will be compared.

text2: (Text) The other string that will be compared.

Returns

Boolean

Notes

When comparing text strings, using this function over the = operator improves performance. The = operator, however, is case-insensitive. Only use the exact() function when case-insensitivity is not a requirement.

Examples

You can experiment with this function in the test box below.

Test Input

exact("Copy of the other","Copy of the other") returns true

exact("HELLO","HELLO") returns true

exact("Hello","HELLO") returns false
