I have 2 tables  
dbo.WideCityList  and dbo.PostalCodes.
I want to find all widecitylist.City, WideCityList.State that does not exist in postalCodes.Cityname, PostalCodes.ProvinceAbbr


All cities in WideCityList have a dash "-" where there should be a space.  
So in WideCity list it is "Los-Angeles" and in PostalCodes it is "Los Angeles"

So a city+state in WideCityList that does not exist in PostalCodes will need to have a replace function for any dashes into spaces.  Hope that makes sense!

Try this:

SELECT w.City, w.State 
FROM WideCityList w LEFT JOIN postalCodes p
ON w.city  = p.Cityname AND w.State = p.ProvinceAbbr
WHERE p.Cityname IS NULL AND p.ProvinceAbbr IS NULL

Two ways:
SELECT REPLACE(City,'-',' ') City,State
FROM WideCityList t
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT NULL FROM PostalCodes WHERE REPLACE(City,'-','')=Cityname AND State=ProvinceAbbr)

OR

SELECT REPLACE(City,'-',' ') City,State
FROM WideCityList t
LEFT JOIN PostalCodes
ON REPLACE(City,'-','')=Cityname AND State=ProvinceAbbr
WHERE Cityname IS NULL

Another solution:

select replace(widecitylist.City, '-',' ') ,
            replace(WideCityList.State, '-','')
from dbo.WideCityList
except
select postalCodes.Cityname,
            PostalCodes.ProvinceAbbr
from dbo.PostalCodes;
