just a simple question here. I need to select a set of ids from my table where the status is != 'R'. I have 4 types of status: P,A,N and R.

 How do i go about doing it? Here is my SQL:

select id from SeekAuthorization
where not exists
select id from SeekAuthorization where status = 'R'
and submitted = 'N'
and userID = 'Tony'
and conType = 'mc'
and submitted = 'N'
and userID = 'Tony'
and conType = 'mc'
order by id ASC

the query looks fine so far, anything not working?

or are you looking for this:

select id from SeekAuthorization
where status <> 'R'
and submitted = 'N'
and userID = 'Tony'
and conType = 'mc'
order by id ASC
