RANGE Function

The RANGE function returns a value that is equal to the value of the maximum argument minus the value of the minimum argument. The type of this function depends on the argument types as follows:

Argument Type Function Type
All arguments integer Integer
Numeric (some arguments may be integer) Numeric


FUNCTION RANGE ({argument-1} ... )


argument-1 Must be class numeric.

Returned Value

The returned value is equal to the greatest value of argument-1 minus the least value of argument-1. The comparisons used to determine the greatest and least values are made according to the rules for simple conditions.
