My query is not picking up records when a row does not exist in the PHONE table.  I'm not sure how to include a proper JOIN on this table.
SELECT LID.LID, 
PERSON.HRLN, 
PERSON.HRFN,
PERSON.HRMI,
HA.STREETLINE1,
HA.STREETLINE2,
HA.CITY,
HA.STATE,
HA.ZIPCODE,
HA.COUNTRY,
L1.DESCRIPTION,
EE.HRDEPTDESC,
EE.HRDEPTID,
EMP2.CONFIG1,
EMP2.CONFIG2,
EMP2.BCT_GROUP,
EMP2.BCT_COORDINATOR,
PH.PHONENUM

FROM LID LID, PERSON PERSON, LOCATION L1, LID_LOC L2, HOME_ADDRESS HA, EMP2 EMP2, EMPLOYEE EE, PHONE PH
WHERE LID.LID=PERSON.LID 
AND HA.PERSONID = PERSON.PERSONID
AND EMP2.PERSONID = PERSON.PERSONID
AND EE.PERSONID = PERSON.PERSONID
AND PH.LID = LID.LID
AND PH.PRIMARY_PHONE = 'Y'
AND LID.LID_TYPE='PERSON'
AND LID.STATUS = 'A'
AND L1.LOCATIONID=L2.LOCATIONID AND L2.PERSONID=PERSON.PERSONID
AND ((PERSON.ENTITYID = 'LWS'
AND L1.LOCATIONID NOT IN (10551,10695, 10698))
OR (PERSON.ENTITYID = 'LHT'
AND L1.LOCATIONID IN (10539,10508,10509,10510,10511)))   
ORDER BY PERSON.HRLN

Because you need to be doing a left join not an inner join. Don't list your tables you're joining in the from statement, use proper join statements.

Lee is right.

What database are you using?
