I'm fairly new to SQL, but need to know how to do the following.

I have 2 tables (table A and Table B) both have employees. I want to know the total number of employees in table A that do not exist in table B). The comlexity is that some of the emplyees in table A are repeated therefore they may exist more than once in table A but will only have one record if they exist in table B.

Many thanks !!

What are the field names in these tables? Something like this should do the job.


SELECT DISTINCT tblA.*
FROM tblA LEFT JOIN tblB
ON tblA.EmployeeName = tblB.EmployeeName
WHERE tblA.EmployeeName is null
