MS Access Query to find items that are S but not P

I have an Item Master Location File (F41021).
Items in the table can have a Primary Location indicated by LPBIN = ‘P’ and
The items can have a Secondary Location indicated by LPBIN  = ‘S’.

There are some Items (LIITM) that have a Secondary Location (LPBIN  = ‘S’) but have no Primary Location (LPBIN = ‘P’).

I am having a ‘Brain Cloud’ and cannot remember how I created this MS Access Query once before.

Basically, I am trying to Query the F41021 table and create a list of item numbers (LIITM) that have a Secondary Location (S) but have no Primary Location (P).

Can you help me jog my memory?

SELECT PRODDTA_F41021.LIITM, PRODDTA_F41021.LIMCU, PRODDTA_F41021.LIPBIN
FROM PRODDTA_F41021
GROUP BY PRODDTA_F41021.LIITM, PRODDTA_F41021.LIMCU, PRODDTA_F41021.LIPBIN
HAVING (((PRODDTA_F41021.LIMCU)="       31101"));

Can you possibly give us an extract or example of the table to be checked... say 5-10 rows this will help to understand better.

Yes. Could not make it work.

It runs but finds no data.

select *
from PRODDTA_F41021
where LiPBIN  = 'S' and LIITM not in (select LIITM from PRODDTA_F41021 as P where  LiPBIN  = 'P')

the sample file you uploaded will not return any record because there is no record with LiPBIN  = 'S'

Hmmm...

I messed up with only 5 records. This file contains 1370 records and some examples.

Oh. This is the one you posted.

SELECT *
FROM PRODDTA_F41021
WHERE (((PRODDTA_F41021.LIPBIN)='S') AND ((PRODDTA_F41021.LIITM) Not In (select LIITM from PRODDTA_F41021 as P where  LiPBIN  = 'P')));

I added one more filter:

SELECT *
FROM PRODDTA_F41021
WHERE (((PRODDTA_F41021.LIPBIN)='S') AND ((PRODDTA_F41021.LIITM) Not In (select LIITM from PRODDTA_F41021 as P where  LiPBIN  = 'P')))
GROUP BY PRODDTA_F41021.LIMCU
HAVING (((PRODDTA_F41021.LIMCU) Like "*31101"));

I pasted the SQL into the Access  query but it still returns no records. I do not understand. The Query looks good.
