query to find Unmatched records

I have 2 tables in access 2003

one is named WorkingCosList and the other is named
ROW_Id_Adp_Id_Cross_Link both with same fields

Here is a sample of data from  WorkingCosList

filenum   shop  emp name
1             1201  john doe
2             1201  jane doe
3             1201  jim doe


Here is a sample of data from  ROW_Id_Adp_Id_Cross_Link
filenum   shop  emp name
1             1201  john doe
2             1201  jane doe

I want a query that will return recods that are in WorkingCosList
but not in ROW_Id_Adp_Id_Cross_Link

In the example above I would want
3             1201  jim doe




I tried playing around with the unmatched query wizard but can't seem to come up with the correct query

The unmatched query wizard does exactly what you are asking for.

Sql - wise...

Select * from WorkingCosList as A left join ROW_Id_Adp_Id_Cross_Link as B
on A.Filenum = B.filenum
where B.Filenum is null

The question here is whether FileNum is the ID corresponding to the person's name (Jane Doe, etc.).  If so, the above suggestions will work.  If not, then you need to check for a match on the Emp Name field.
