MySQL NOT IN Query

I'm trying to get a list of names from one query that are not in the list of results from the second query:

Query 1 - Returns 289 users

SELECT tbl_Data.FirstName, tbl_Data.LastName, tbl_Data.ID
FROM tbl_Data
WHERE tbl_Data.CECMember =1

Open in new window


Query 2 - Returns 221 users

SELECT tbl_Data.FirstName, tbl_Data.LastName, tbl_Data.ID
FROM tbl_Data, tbl_Attendance
WHERE tbl_Data.ID = tbl_Attendance.VisitorID
AND tbl_Attendance.Date
BETWEEN  '2012-03-01'
AND  '2012-04-01'
AND (
tbl_Data.CECMember =  '1'
)
GROUP BY tbl_Attendance.VisitorID
ORDER BY  `tbl_Data`.`LastName` ASC 

Open in new window


Now, I'd like to get a list of the 68 users in Query 1 that are NOT in Query 2.

I tried using the following:

SELECT tbl_Data.FirstName, tbl_Data.LastName, tbl_Data.ID
FROM tbl_Data
WHERE tbl_Data.CECMember =1 and
tbl_Data.ID NOT IN
(
SELECT tbl_Data.FirstName, tbl_Data.LastName, tbl_Data.ID
FROM tbl_Data, tbl_Attendance
WHERE tbl_Data.ID = tbl_Attendance.VisitorID
AND tbl_Attendance.Date
BETWEEN  '2012-03-01'
AND  '2012-04-01'
AND
tbl_Data.CECMember =  '1'
GROUP BY tbl_Attendance.VisitorID
ORDER BY  `tbl_Data`.`LastName` ASC 
)

Open in new window


This gives me the following error message:  #1241 - Operand should contain 1 column(s)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You're right it doesn't...MINUS is Oracle and for some reason I was thinking your post said MSSQL, which would use EXCEPT... so boy, I was way off...

yeah, with MySQL you'll need to use IN. You're sub-select can only return a single column..

Try...



SELECT tbl_Data.FirstName, tbl_Data.LastName, tbl_Data.ID
FROM tbl_Data
WHERE tbl_Data.CECMember =1 and
tbl_Data.ID NOT IN
(
SELECT tbl_Data.ID
FROM tbl_Data, tbl_Attendance
WHERE tbl_Data.ID = tbl_Attendance.VisitorID
AND tbl_Attendance.Date
BETWEEN  '2012-03-01'
AND  '2012-04-01'
AND
tbl_Data.CECMember =  '1'
GROUP BY tbl_Attendance.VisitorID
ORDER BY  `tbl_Data`.`LastName` ASC 
)

EXCEPT

FROM tbl_Data, tbl_Attendance
WHERE tbl_Data.ID = tbl_Attendance.VisitorID
AND tbl_Data.CECMember =  '1'
AND tbl_Attendance.Date BETWEEN  '2012-03-01' AND  '2012-04-01'

I don't believe MySQL has a "MINUS" function.

You should use the name of the query like

SELECT query1.FirstName, query1.LastName, query1.ID
FROM query1

LEFT JOIN query2 ON query2.ID

WHERE query.CECMember =1 AND query1.ID IS NOT NULL

Something similar to that
