	d1 As Decimal, _
	d2 As Decimal _
) As Decimal

Parameters

d1
Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal (the dividend).
d2
Type: System.Decimal
A Decimal (the divisor).

Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The Decimal result of d1 by d2.

ExceptionCondition
DivideByZeroException

d2 is zero.

OverflowException

The return value is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

The following code example creates several pairs of Decimal values and calculates their quotients with the Division operator.


Module Example
   Const dataFmt As String = "{0,-38}{1,31}"

   Sub ShowDecimalProQuoRem(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock, _
                            ByVal Left As Decimal, ByVal Right As Decimal)
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format(dataFmt, "Decimal Left", Left) & vbCrLf
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format(dataFmt, "Decimal Right", Right) & vbCrLf

      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format(dataFmt, _
          "Decimal.op_Multiply( Left, Right )", _
          Decimal.op_Multiply(Left, Right)) & vbCrLf
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format(dataFmt, _
          "Decimal.op_Division( Left, Right )", _
          Decimal.op_Division(Left, Right)) & vbCrLf
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format(dataFmt, _
          "Decimal.op_Modulus( Left, Right )", _
          Decimal.op_Modulus(Left, Right)) & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
   End Sub
