**Public Function Div( _
ByVal vX As Variant _
, ByVal vY As Variant _
) As Variant**

**"Divide" or "Division" **

Divide two real and/or complex numbers.

**Examples:** Div(3.3, 4.76) = 0.69327731092437
Div(5.2, "6|7") = "0.367058823529412|-0.428235294117647"
Div("-8|-9", 5) = "-1.6|-1.8"
Div("1|2", "4|5") = "0.341463414634146|7.31707317073171E-02"

**vX:** The dividend; number which is to be divided by the other number. Function returns Null if vX is Null or cannot be fixed up to a real or complex number (as defined by the ComplexStringToReals function). Complex numbers are represented within strings as "R|I" where R is the real part and I is the imaginary part. **vY:** The divisor; number of times that vX is to be divided. Function returns Null if vY is Null or cannot be fixed up to a real or complex number.

**Note:** If vY is 0 (zero), the function returns Null to represent the "division by zero" error.
