ordering-functions greater than or equal to or right side has null values


  • ge_or_rhs_null(a, b)


ge_or_rhs_null(a, b) results in a boolean data-item indicating if the values of data item a are greater than or equals to the corresponding values of data item b or if the values of data item a are null.


The comparison with missing values in data item a results in the value True (except for null values in data item b).

-100 100 False
999 -999 True
