Hi All,

I need to write a code in SQL Server 2008 in which I have 4 columns(First Name (2 columns) and Last Name (2 columns)).I have a 5th column name 'Status'.I have set a condition that if value in 1st and 3rd column [First Name]and 2nd & 4th column [Last Name] matches the status is shown TRUE else FALSE.But now I have been told to write Column name even if the data is matching or if it has discrepancy, instead TRUE or FALSE.

Can anyone guide me regarding this?

I am just a beginner in this field.

Hi and welcome to the forums. Unfortunately from what you posted it is pretty difficult to offer much assistance. In order to help we will need a few things:

1. Sample DDL in the form of CREATE TABLE statements
2. Sample data in the form of INSERT INTO statements
3. Expected results based on the sample data

Please take a few minutes and read the first article in my signature for best practices when posting questions.
