I have a view with the following 4 fields

ClientID   ContactID    ContactType   FullName


I want to do a UNION all and
Select  ClientID, ContactID,ContactType,FullName
From ClientContacts

Where the ClientCOntacts record doesn't exist in the View

The similar fields are of course ClientID and ContactID
