The sign condition establishes whether or not the algebraic value of an operand is negative, positive or zero. The operand can be either the numeric identifier or an arithmetic expression. The format of this condition is as shown below:
When an arithmetic expression is used, it should contain at least one of the identifier. The POSITIVE option establishes the value of the condition to be true only if the value of the operand is firmly positive. This means that the zero value is not considered as positive.
