Function

exact( text1, text2 )

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

Parameters

Keyword Type Description

text1

Text

One of two strings that will be compared.

text2

Text

The other string that will be compared.

Returns

Boolean

Usage considerations

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
