I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There are two different CASE syntax.  For the one you are attempting try:

CASE WHEN A.MGR_ID <> scd.MGR_ID THEN 'Y'
            ELSE 'N'
END AS MGR_CHANGED

No problem.  Glad to help.

Since I mentioned the other way, I should provide an example.

It is based on a known value, like a column,  then you can check for the values:
select CASE dummy when 'X' THEN 'Y'
            ELSE 'N'
END AS MGR_CHANGED
