Hi,

See attached - very simple database.
Table of Suppliers.
Table of products.
Table of prices of products for suppliers.

In theory, there should be a price in the prices table for every supplier/product combination.

I want a query that will show all Supplier/Product combinations that DO NOT exist in the tblPrices.

Can you zip the attachment and upload it as I could not able to download the mdb extension files. If not, you can post some sample data with expected result. Otherwise, I hope someone will look into this.
