SQL: TableA records not in TableB

(gotta love these late-afternoon brain cramps)

TableA, say 440 records, only field is ID
TableB, say 400 records, only field is ID

How to write SQL that returns the 40 TableA records that are not in TableB?  Something like...

SELECT ID
FROM TableA
LEFT JOIN TableB ON TableA.ID = TableB.ID
WHERE TableB.ID {is not in table A}

Thanks in advance.

SELECT TableA.id
FROM TableA
LEFT OUTER JOIN TableB ON TableA.id = TableB.id
WHERE TableB.id IS NULL

SQL will automatically set every column in a not-found outer join table to NULL.
