TEXT = TEXT Operator

The TEXT = TEXT operator returns a value of true if the two text values you specify are the same.

The TEXT = TEXT operator works with any two text values including Text variables, text expressions, and functions returning text values.

You cannot compare a Text List value with a Text Value directly. To identify whether a Text List contains a certain Text value, parentheses around the text value are recommended.

Operator Description After you drag and drop the operator into the script tab: Expression returns:
= ⟦Text⟧ = ⟦Text⟧ Replace both ⟦TEXT⟧ placeholders with the variables you want to compare in your script, or compare a variable to a given text value you write; in the later case, place quotes around your text. A TRUE/FALSE value.
