Used to divide two numbers and return only the remainder.
result = number1 Mod number2

The Mod operator syntax has these parts:

Part Description
result Any numeric variable.
number1 Any numeric expression.
number2 Any numeric expression.

The modulus, or remainder, operator divides number1 by number2 (rounding floating-point numbers to integers) and returns only the remainder as result. For example, in the following expression, A (which is result) equals 5.

A = 19 Mod 6.7
If any expression is Null, result is also Null. Any expression that is Empty is treated as 0.
