1it indicates that the field that follows the less than symbol has lesser value or weight than the preceding text or memo field?
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

If this is Access rather than Excel, then that would change the field's content to lower case.
