    Hi all,
    I have two table both with the same Unique Identifier field (staffID) I need
    to construct a sql statement that lists the records in the first table as
    long as their staffID does not exist in the second table.
    Example table:

    Table 1.
    StaffID, Firstname, Surname

    Table 2
    StaffID, LoggedIn, Dte


    Can anyone help me out with this?

    cheers,

    nathan.

    Hi Nathan,

    There is a "Find Unmatched Query Wizard" built into Access to assist you
    with this very type of task. Select the Queries tab in the database window.
    Click on the New button. The last item in the list is the wizard that you
    want to use.

    SELECT Table1.StaffID, Firstname, Surname
    FROM Table1 LEFT JOIN Table2 ON Table1.StaffID = Table2.StaffID
    WHERE Table2.StaffID Is Null;

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
