How to filter a query using a field from another table in access?

I have a table called EmpBasic which lists Employees. I want to run a query on that table that gets any ebEmpID filtered out based on the EmpIDs found in tblFilter.

How can I use the filter table tblFilter to filter out my query on EmpBasic?

Thanks in advance!

Or even this, using an inner join (might be faster)

SELECT EmpBasic .* FROM EmpBasic INNER JOIN tblFilter ON EmpBasic.ebEmpID  = tblFilter.EMPID

The tblFilter actually contains a list of the EmpIDs I don't want to appear in the query.. I just changed the first example to NOT IN.

That does the job though!

I was reading that backwards.  Sorry about that.

Glad you worked it out.
