Selecting rows

I have a Sales and an Inventory table that I want to select only Sales rows that match multiple inventory items.

i.e. the Sales table has sales order number 1234 and the Inventory table has multiple rows that all have sales order number 1234 but one row has a status of "Sales_Hold" another has a row with a status of "CC_PMT" and another row with a status of  "COD". I have a second Sales order number 5432 and the Inventory table has multiple rows that all have sales order 5432 but one row has a status of "COD" and another row with a status of "RELEASED".

I want to select a sales order if a matching inventory row has a status of "COD" but not if there is also a matching inventory row with a status of "Sales_Hold".

In this example sales order 5432 would be true but sales order 1234 would be false.

Hope this is clear.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

select * from sales s
join inventory i on s.ordernumber = i.ordernumber
where status = 'cod'
and not exists(select 1 from inventory ii where i.ordernumber = ii.ordernumber and status = 'sales_hold')

In SQL Server 2005 you can use EXCEPT to exclude orders that is "sales_hold"

select * from sales s
join inventory i on s.ordernumber = i.ordernumber
where status = 'cod'
EXCEPT
select * from sales s
join inventory i on s.ordernumber = i.ordernumber
where status = 'sales_hold'

Try this one, it should work

select s.* from Sales s inner join Inventory i on s.OrderNumber = i.OrderNumber where i.Status = 'COD' and s.OrderNumber not in (select distinct ii.OrderNumber from Inventory ii where ii.Status = 'Sales_Hold')
