When i try to do substitution, we need to type some basic symbols like the SQL symbols, there are 2 symbols which my colleagues ask me how to use. -> and <-> , anyone know how to use these 2 so that i can share the knowledge with my team members. thanks

Hi Lei,

"→" is mathematically speaking an implication operator.

For example Statement A →  Statement B     

means  (A/B could be a statement like (Posting DATE < current date)

-                      IF A is true and B is true then the result is true

-                      IF A is false and B is false then the result is true

-                      IF A is true and B is false then the result is false

-                      IF A is false and B is true then the result is true

↔ is mathematically an equivalence, meaning… 

-                      IF A is true and B is true then the result is true

               IF A is false and B is false then the result is true  

-                      IF A is true and B is false then the result is false

-                      IF A is false and B is true then the result is false

Hope above information is helpful for you.

Best Regards,
Gladys
