I am drawing a blank - I have two tables worth of data where I need to remove unmatached from table1.

I need to find all records from table 1(TA_FTIR) that doesn't exists in table2 (TD_FTIR) and remove them from table1.  

My current query seems to return only those records that are equal, I tried changing the join and the placement of the is Null without success.  What am I missing?

SELECT TA_FTIR.FTIR_MeasNo, TD_FTIR.FirstOfFTIR_BusName
FROM TD_FTIR LEFT JOIN TA_FTIR ON TD_FTIR.[FirstOfFTIR_BusName] = TA_FTIR.[FTIR_MeasNo]
WHERE (((TD_FTIR.FirstOfFTIR_BusName) Is Not Null));

use this query

SELECT TA_FTIR.FTIR_MeasNo, TD_FTIR.FirstOfFTIR_BusName
FROM TD_FTIR LEFT JOIN TA_FTIR ON TD_FTIR.[FirstOfFTIR_BusName] = TA_FTIR.[FTIR_MeasNo]
WHERE (((TD_FTIR.FirstOfFTIR_BusName) Is Null));
                                 

to delete those records, use this query

Delete * from
TA_FTIR , TD_FTIR
Where TA_FTIR.[FTIR_MeasNo] Not In
 (Select [FirstOfFTIR_BusName]  From TD_FTIR)
0

I still have an issue with my from clause.

DELETE TA_FTIR.*
FROM
(
SELECT TA_FTIR.FTIR_BusName
FROM TA_FTIR, TD_ARINC_BusDnld
WHERE (((TA_FTIR.FTIR_Type) Like "A429" Or (TA_FTIR.FTIR_Type)="A629" Or (TA_FTIR.FTIR_Type)="A664" Or (TA_FTIR.FTIR_Type)="HFCI" Or (TA_FTIR.FTIR_Type)="ENET" Or (TA_FTIR.FTIR_Type)="DAR"))
GROUP BY TA_FTIR.FTIR_BusName
HAVING (((TA_FTIR.FTIR_BusName) Not In (Select [FTIR_BusName]  From TD_ARINC_BusDnld ))) as A INNER JOIN TA_FTIR ON A.FTIR_BusName = TA_FTIR.FTIR_MeasNo;
