​​​​SQL Greater Than or Equal To Comparison Operator

The SQL Greater Than or Equal To comparison operator (>=) is used to compare two values.  It returns TRUE if the first value is greater than or equal to the second.  If the second is greater, it returns FALSE. 

You can also test for greater than or equal to by using >=.  

Here are a couple of examples: 

10 >= 5TRUE 
5 >= 20FALSE
10 >= 10TRUE

Here is an example using the SQL greater than or equal to comparison operator to find all products whose list price is $3000 or greater:

SELECT ProductNumber, Name, ListPrice FROM Production.Product WHERE ListPrice >= 3000
SELECT ProductNumber, Name, ListPrice
FROM   Production.Product
WHERE  ListPrice >= 3000

SQL Greater Than or Equal To with Other Types 

You can use the SQL greater than or equal to comparison with other data types, such as VARCHAR and DATETIME

Here we’re returning products modified after February 1st, 2014.

SELECT ProductNumber, Name, ListPrice, ModifiedDate FROM Production.Product WHERE ModifiedDate >= '2014-02-01'
SELECT ProductNumber, Name, ListPrice, ModifiedDate
FROM   Production.Product
WHERE  ModifiedDate >= '2014-02-01'
