I need a query that deletes everything from the "Names" table but only where where is not a matching ID in the "Departments" table.  So in the example below, ID's 1, 3 and 6 would  be deleted, but ID's 2, 4 and 5 would not be deleted.  I can't figure out the query.

   Names                                                    Departments

ID     Name                                           ID            Department
==     =====                                          ==            ==========
1       Smith                                          2               Accounting
2       Jones                                           4               Management
3       Miller                                          5               Purchasing
4       Washington
5       Lewis
6       Brown
