Returns a value indicating whether a specified Decimal is greater than or equal to another specified Decimal.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

'Declaration
Public Shared Operator >= ( _
	d1 As Decimal, _
	d2 As Decimal _
) As Boolean

Parameters

d1
Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal.
d2
Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if d1 is greater than or equal to d2; otherwise, false.

The following code example compares several Decimal values to a reference Decimal value using the Greater Than or Equal operator.
