Hello Experts.

I am having trouble trouble writing this query properly, what I'm trying to do is
SELECT [EQP_SERIAL_EQP], [LAST_DATE], [EQP_STAT_EQP] FROM [TechBuffer] WHERE ([TECHID] = @TECHID) AND WHERE CPETRANSMIT.CPE1 <> [EQP_SERIAL_EQP] AND CPETRANSMIT.CPE2 <> [EQP_SERIAL_EQP] etc........

Basically would like to select rows from TechBuffer Table Where [EQP_SERIAL_EQP]
does not exist in CPETransmit Table columns cpe1,cpe2,cpe3,cpe4,cpe5 .............. in the CPETransmit Table

It seems like something I should be able to do with Exist command or if anyone has a easier method.

Where not exists syntax is;

SELECT [EQP_SERIAL_EQP], [LAST_DATE], [EQP_STAT_EQP]
FROM [TechBuffer]
WHERE not exists (select * from CPETRANSMIT Where [TechBuffer].EQP_SERIAL_EQP = CPETRANSMIT.CPE1);
