You can type inside the IF:

“NOT (your condition)”

Hi Axel, Could you please help with my condition, which shows in snap.

You want to compare data in those datatable?

Yup, EQUAL TO is working fine for me but I want to use NOT EQUAL.

hope these steps could help you resolve this
–First we need to conver the datatable to string
–for that use a output datatable activity where pass the first datatable as input and get the output with a variable of type string named outstr1
–and use another output datatabe activity where pass the second datatabe and get the output as outstr2
–now use a if condition like this
Not outstr1.ToString.Equals(outstr2.ToString)

the reason why you first condition of equals work is
if datatable variable is with .ToString it will give as so for both it will be like =

which is equal indeed but not the right way to compare buddy
so we need to convert to a string and then only compare it

hope ths would help you

@khan are you converting your datatables to string before comparing?? You can use != or use Equals Method it will return True or False

Can I use “Output Data Table” for conversion or you have some other idea, please share
