I'm trying to select rows from table A where there isn't a corresponding row in table B

I'm trying this but it's not returning any results at all. Table A has 30 records and at the minute table B has none, so it should return every row in table A.

SELECT *
FROM leads
LEFT JOIN lead_activity ON leads.id = lead_activity.lead_id
WHERE lead_activity.id =  ''
LIMIT 0 , 30

Hi Sheppard,

Close, very close.  :)  Test for null instead of space.

  WHERE lead_activity.id is NULL


Good Luck,
Kent

Thanks, I had tried WHERE lead_activity.id = NULL and it didnt work, but now I know it needs to be 'IS'
