2  300        33
5  600

customer table has
Id salary  bonus
1   100     33
2   500      44
5   800

select e.id, case when e.salary != c.salary || e.bonus != c.bonus then 'false' else 'true' end status

getting error

have you tried using OR instead of ||

select e.id, case when e.salary != c.salary OR e.bonus != c.bonus then 'false' else 'true' end status

>>select e.id, case when e.salary != c.salary || e.bonus != c.bonus then 'false' else 'true' end status


'||' is a string concatination.  I think you want 'or' here.

select e.id, case when e.salary != c.salary or e.bonus != c.bonus then 'false' else 'true' end status
