Hi,

I ame currently looking for a way to generate the names of any staff members that are not assinged to a job.

Basicly i have 2 tables. One contailing all the staff and their information. The second table holds jobs and they information including the assinged staff member to the job.

I would like to generate a list of staff members that have not been assinged to a job yet.

I was thinking about somthing whit a right join maby but i'm not too sure.

Any ideas?

thnx,
Necht

this would give you an idea

SELECT *
FROM stafftable s
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT 1
                  FROM Jobs
                  WHERE AssignedStaff = s.Staff)


I've assumed table and column names so make sure you use correct names instead
