Buddy @armamidwar

Kindly check with the below suggestions that might resolve your issue
Usually done like
inputDT.Select("Columnname1 = ‘Columnvalue’)

if you want to compare two Column values

inputDT.Select(“Columname1 = ‘Columnvalue1’ or Columnname1 = ‘Columnvalue2’”)

if you want to compare two column values of half string known

inputDT.Select(“Columname1 = ‘Columnvalue1*’ or Columnname1 = ‘Columnvalue2*’”)

Hope this would help you buddy


Thanks for replying , will check on confirm back soon
