I need sql queries  for the questions below: I included the queries that I am using but gives me one saleperson only. I know that "two orders do not have items."    

Th tables are in the attached file.

If I need to use full outer join query then how can I implement that ?   Thank you

Which sales people have NOT sold anything?    Subquery version

SELECT s.Ename
FROM SALESPERSONS s
WHERE s.EmpID NOT IN(
SELECT o.EmpID
FROM ORDERS o
   , SALESPERSONS s
WHERE o.EmpID = s.EmpID);
GO

Which sales people have NOT sold anything? JOIN version (explicit/named JOIN)

SELECT s.Ename
FROM SALESPERSONS s
FULL OUTER  JOIN  ORDERS o ON o.EmpID = s.EmpID
WHERE o.EmpID IS NULL;

I object to deleting this question.  I offered two different ways to resolve the original question before the Asker (1) completely changed the question and then (2) decided that s/he no longer wanted to proceed.
