trigger Winning on Opportunity (before update) {
  for (Opportunity opp : Trigger.new) {
    // Access the "old" record by its ID in Trigger.oldMap
    Opportunity oldOpp = Trigger.oldMap.get(opp.Id);

    // Trigger.new records are conveniently the "new" versions!
    Boolean oldOppIsWon = oldOpp.StageName.equals('Closed Won');
    Boolean newOppIsWon = opp.StageName.equals('Closed Won');
   
    // Check that the field was changed to the correct value
    if (!oldOppIsWon && newOppIsWon) {
      opp.I_am_Awesome__c = true;
    }

You are assigning boolean value to string, that is why it is giving an error.
If you want to give true value to Awesome__c, than give it as,

opp.Awesome__c= 'true';

If this solves your problem, kindly mark it as the best answer.

Thanks,

Hi Manjunath,

Have you check API name of the field I_am_Awesome__c?
It may contain some spelling mistake.

Hi Vatsal,
I hav changed the name to Awesome and tried the code 
opp.Awesome__c= true;
Now Iam getting the different error message.
Error Error: Compile Error: Illegal assignment from Boolean to String at line 13 column 7

What is the data type of Awesome__c?
