When several operators are used in an expression, each operator is evaluated in a predetermined order. Operators are evaluated in this order:

• ^ (power)

• - (negate)

• * (multiply), / (divide)

• \ (integer divide)

• Mod (integer remainder)

• + (add), - (difference)

• & (string concatenate)

• = (equal), <> (not equal), < (less than) > (greater than), <= (less than or equal to), >= (greater than or equal to), Like, (string similarity) Is (object equivalence)

• Not (logical bitwise invert)

• And (logical bitwise and)

• Or (logical or bitwise or)

• Xor (logical or bitwise exclusive-or)

• Eqv (logical or bitwise equivalence)

• Imp (logical or bitwise implication)

Operators shown on the same line are evaluated from left to right.
