Hi
I am using Paradox tables.
Can somebody advise me on how to create a query in delphi using 2 tables
I have a header table and detail table ( 1 to N relationship)
The key field is Job_no which is unique in the header
I want to create a query which shows me all the records that have no header records in the details table
I what to avoid using a do while loop
Regards

You need a JOIN query, that will bring together one to many relational tables

Select header.*,detail.* from header inner join detail on header.job_no = detail.job_no;

no you need a left join, not an inner

select d.*
from detail d
  left join header h on h.job_no = d.job_no
order by d.job_no

this will show you all the records in detail without header
and order them

select d.job_no, count(*) as amount_no_header
from detail d
  left join header h on h.job_no = d.job_no
group by d.job_no
order by d.job_no

will show how many records for each job_no that have no header

to delete all records in detail without header:
delete from details
where not job_no in (select job_no from header)

to see all headers without details
select h.*
from header h
  left join details d on h.job_no = d.job_no

if the solution works, you should give an A
if it only works half and you have to edit the code and do research give it a B
if it doesn't work at all give comments and let the experts handle the comments

if you are totally dissatified with the experts comments and all experts have commented
give it a C
