Exponentiation Operator (^)

Raises a number to the power of an exponent.

result = number^exponent


Any numeric variable.


Any numeric expression.


Any numeric expression.

Number can be negative only if exponent is an integer value. When more than one exponentiation is performed in a single expression, the ^ operator is evaluated as it is encountered from left to right.

If either number or exponent is a Null expression, result is also Null.
