I have a table that contains text type information for a given case.  There can be 1 or more text type for a given case.  I am trying to write a query that will return only those case numbers that do not have a text_type of resolution for any of the text types for a given case

 Here is some sample  data

Case_id     Text_Type_Seq   Text_Type        
1                1                           Notes
1                2                           Notes
1                3                           Resolution
2                1                           Notes
2                2                           Notes
2                3                           Notes
2                4                           Notes
3                1                           Notes
3                2                           Notes
4                1                           Notes
4                2                           Resolution


Using the sample data above:

The query should only return

Case_ID
2
3

Since case 1 and 4 have a text type of resolution

If you find yourself in this situation “I have used SELECT DISTINCT but I’m getting duplicates” then I'm sorry to say you are using the wrong SQL technique as it only does one thing which is: produces whole rows that are unique. If the results you a…
I'm trying, I really am. But I've seen so many wrong approaches involving date(time) boundaries I despair about my inability to explain it. I've seen quite a few recently that define a non-leap year as 364 days, or 366 days and the list goes on. …
