I have a course and student tracking database (Access and ASP)
Tbl1 (empId, Name) is a list of ALL students Tbl2 (couresID, Title) is a list of ALL available courses Tbl 3 (empid, couresID) is a list of  the students and the courses they registered for. So far so good, i  pull reports on who registered to a certain course and what course a student is registered for.
I got this weird request from my mangers to pull a report that would show all the student
that didn't register to specific course.

I tried unsuccessfully to create this query. I hope there is way to do it or someone
that can guide me in the right direction, like you guys dome many times in the Past.

Thank You all in advanced.

I'm not sure if Access supports nested subqueries, but if so, I think this will work:

Select EmpID, Name FROM tbl1 WHERE empid NOT IN (Select distinct empid FROM tbl3)

Intresting. I would like to refine this query to show all the students that that are not registred to a specific course (say only  where tbl2 course ID = 4).
