# Decimal.GreaterThan Operator (Decimal, Decimal)

.NET Framework (current version)

equivalentCodeEntityM:System.Decimal.Compare(System.Decimal,System.Decimal)

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

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

## Syntax

```public static bool operator >(
decimal d1,
decimal d2
)
```

#### Parameters

d1
Type: System.Decimal

The first value to compare.

d2
Type: System.Decimal

The second value to compare.

#### Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if d1 is greater than d2; otherwise, false.

## Remarks

The GreaterThan method defines the operation of the greater than operator for Decimal values. It enables code such as the following:

```using System;

public class Example
{
public static void Main()
{
Decimal number1 = 16354.0699m;
Decimal number2 = 16354.0695m;
Console.WriteLine("{0} > {1}: {2}", number1,
number2, number1 > number2);

number1 = Decimal.Round(number1, 2);
number2 = Decimal.Round(number2, 2);
Console.WriteLine("{0} > {1}: {2}", number1,
number2, number1 > number2);
}
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       16354.0699 > 16354.0695: True
//       16354.07 > 16354.07: False
```

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the Compare method instead. They may also be able to call the GreaterThan method directly, as the following example shows.

```Module Example
Public Sub Main()
Dim number1 As Decimal = 16354.0699d
Dim number2 As Decimal = 16354.0695d
Console.WriteLine("{0} > {1}: {2}", number1, number2,
Decimal.op_GreaterThan(number1, number2))

number1 = Decimal.Round(number1, 2)
number2 = Decimal.Round(number2, 2)
Console.WriteLine("{0} > {1}: {2}", number1, number2,
Decimal.op_GreaterThan(number1, number2))
End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       16354.0699 > 16354.0695: True
'       16354.07 > 16354.07: False
```
