NULLIF Function in SQL Server with example


Most of the interviewer ask this question. What is NULLIF Function? The NULLIF function compares expression1 and expression2. If expression1 and expression2 are equal, the NULLIF function returns NULL. Otherwise, it returns the first expression which is expression1.

Expression1 and Expression2 should be same datatype.


SELECT NULLIF(8, 8); -- Return NULL

SELECT NULLIF(8, 9); -- Return 8 (Ther first expression)

SELECT NULLIF('DOTNETCUBE',8); -- This query gives error because exp1 and exp2 have diffrent datatype.
