Used to divide two numbers and return a floating-point result.
result = operand1 / operand2
The operands can be any numeric expression.
The data type3GYXY7 of result is usually a Double or a Variant of VarType 5 (Double). The following are exceptions to this rule:
When both operands are Integer or Single expressions, result is a Single unless it overflows its legal range, in which case, result is a Double.
When both operands are Variant expressions of VarType 2 (Integer) or VarType 4 (Single), result is a Variant of VarType 4 (Single) unless it overflows its legal range, in which case, result is a Variant of VarType 5 (Double).
If one or both operands are Null Any operand that is Empty (VarType 0) is treated as 0. expressions, result is a Null.
