Used to raise a number to the power of an exponent.

result = number^exponent

The ^ operator syntax has these parts:

Part Description
result Any numeric variable.
number Any numeric expression.
exponent 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.
