the statement was wrong it should be

select *
from students s left outer join slot_table st on s.slot_id=st.slot_id
where s.isActive=1

But it still shows inactive students too

momi_sabagCommented:
that is impossible , but you can try this
with a as (select *
from students s left outer join slot_table st on s.slot_id=st.slot_id)
select * from a
where s.isActive=1
0
divyeshhdoshiCommented:
may be there is no inactive students or you set isActive=1 for inactive students
