None. Zero (0) = minus Zero (-0) = plus Zero (+0).

You're way off, unless you'd like to provide a link to a document that would prove your point and/or disprove the previous responses.

What the @#*& does that statement mean? "Just pass why you are qurys?"

SuperK was right!!

There is no difference in (+0) and (-0) GDG Generations.
If you try to use (+0) or (-0), it only refers to current version of GDG.

hi,
there is no difference. 0 represents current greneration. GDGBASE (-) represents previous generation and GDGBASE (+) represents next generation.


regards,
vidhya

-0 as well as +0 are same & there no diffrence between them. Instead of these different versions of GDG are present -1,0,+0 - sign indicates previose version of dataset & + sign denotes newer one.
