# ABAP CDS - cond_expr, Relational Operators

Other versions:
| *7.31* | *7.40***7.54**

## Syntax

```
... lhs operator rhs ...
```

### Effect

Compares in a condition in a CDS view. The following table shows the possible operators operator of the relational expressions rel_exp:

rel_expr | True if |
---|---|

lhs = rhs | Value of lhs is equal to the value of rhs |

lhs <> rhs | Value of lhs is not equal to the value of rhs |

lhs < rhs | Value of lhs is less than the value of rhs |

lhs > rhs | Value of lhs is greater than the value of rhs |

lhs <= rhs | Value of lhs is less than or equal to the value of rhs |

lhs >= rhs | Value of lhs is greater than or equal to the value of rhs |

- Context-dependent rules apply when specifying the operands lhs and rhs.

- The tables of comparable types show which data types can be compared with each other.
