^ (Bitwise Exclusive OR) (SSIS Expression)

Performs a bitwise exclusive OR operation of two integer values. It compares each bit of its first operand to the corresponding bit of its second operand. If one bit is 0 and the other bit is 1, the corresponding result bit is set to 1. If both bits are 0 or both bits are 1, the corresponding result bit is set to 0.

Both conditions must be a signed integer data type or both conditions must be an unsigned integer data type.


integer_expression1 ^ integer_expression2
        

integer_expression1, integer_expression2

Is any valid expression of a signed or unsigned integer data type. For more information, see Integration Services Data Types.

Determined by data types of the two arguments. For more information, see Integration Services Data Types in Expressions.

If either condition is null, the expression result is null.

This example performs a bitwise exclusive OR operation between variables NumberA and NumberB. NumberA contains 3 (00000011) and NumberB contains 7 (00000111).

@NumberA ^ @NumberB

The expression evaluates to 4 (00000100).

00000011

00000111

-----------

00000100

This example performs a bitwise exclusive OR operation between the ReorderPoint and SafetyStockLevel columns.

ReorderPoint ^ SafetyStockLevel

If ReorderPoint is 10 and SafetyStockLevel is 8, the expression evaluates to 2 (00000010).

00001010

00001000

-----------

00000010

This example performs a bitwise exclusive OR operation between two integers.

3 ^ 5 

The expression evaluates to 6 (00000110).

00000011

00000101

-----------

00000110
