Assistance finding members with no claims

Hi Experts,

My thanks in advance for your assistance...

Code-wise, I am having a hard time with my SQL trying to figure out who has never had a claim for a certain time period yet is a member during the same time period.

It is easy for those with any claims between start_dt and end_dt but to state having a count of zero or NULL claims I realize is not logical.

The basic tables I am working with are MEMBERS and MASTER_CLAIM and maybe need to pull in a membership view vmembership.

I can provide some basic column names and data -- at this point I need more help jump-starting how to tackle the process!

You could select all the members where membership was valid during the given period and perhaps use a not in statement to exclude them from the list of members that have had a claim in that period

e.g:
Select memberID, memberName, etc
from members
where membership_start_dt >= '20120101' and membership_end_dt < '20130101'
and memberID NOT IN (Select memberID from MasterClaim where where start_dt >= '20120101' and end_dt < '20130101')

Just create a SQL statement that returns the member ID's where membership was valid and then put an surrounding select where you return all records where the member ID is not in the inner select statement.
