Evaluate Statement Command

Evaluates and displays the given statement.

Debug.EvaluateStatement text

text

Required. The statement to evaluate.

The window used to enter the EvaluateStatement command determines whether an equals sign (=) is interpreted as a comparison operator or as an assignment operator.

In the Command window, an equals sign (=) is interpreted as a comparison operator. So, for example, if the values of variables a and b are different, then the command

>Debug.EvaluateStatement(a=b)

will return a value of false.

In the Immediate window, by contrast, an equals sign (=) is interpreted as an assignment operator. So, for example, the command

>Debug.EvaluateStatement(a=b)

will assign to variable a the value of variable b.

>Debug.EvaluateStatement(a+b)
