        dt = (from q in db.Csm_quotations
              join j in db.Csm_quotation_jobs on q.QuotationId equals j.QuotationId

cant implicitly convert type 'char' to 'bool' error msg

If grp.Key.Status can be only A or R, then you can change it to grp.Key.Status == 'A' ? "Approved" : "Rejected" (note the == in the statement, that's what your error message is about). In case it can also be something else, you're still missing something in your statement. You'd have to do something like this: grp.Key.Status == 'A' ? "Approved" : grp.Key.Status == 'R' ? "Rejected" : "Unknown"

but is show cant convert 'char' to 'string' , that why i very blur now

Is grp.Key.Status a String or char? If it's a string, compare with "A", if it's a char, use 'A'.
