three tables - show different records that exist in one table

Post by DirtyRa » Thu, 23 Oct 2003 22:04:51


Hello Everyone

I have three tables.
This is the pseudo code of what I want to do with the tables.
If FirstName and LastName exists in payroll_current AND exists in
payroll_terminated then do NOT show record in nds_all

Constraints are that the data from our Novell NDS tree does not have a
unique identifier like the emp no field that exists in the payroll tables. I
am trying to use the FirstName and LastName fields to create the joins but
have not been successful.

Any help appreciated (I hope this formats ok for everyone.)

Any help greatly appreciated

Regards

Jonathon Egan

Possibly something like the following would work.

SELECT N.UserID, N.FirstName, N.Surname
FROM (Payroll_Current as C
INNER JOIN Payroll_Terminated as T
ON C.FirstName = T.FirstName AND
C.SurName = T.Surname)
RIGHT JOIN NDS_All as N
ON N.FirstName = C.FirstName
AND N.Surname = C.Surname
WHERE C.Surname is Null

If that doesn't work then build a query joining the Payroll and terminated
tables on the FirstName and Surnames. Save it and then use the Unmatched query
wizard to find records in NDS_All that don't exist in the new query.

John

Awesome stuff I will try your code example and post info on how it goes.

I have tried the unmatched query but not the way you suggested. I will try
it right now.
