I am using Microsoft Access with ODBC tables

I have 2 queries that query the same tables but with different criteria.
I'd like the 1st query to only include records that do not exist in my 2nd query.
How do I achieve this?

Both queries include Names and a reference number.
Query 1 should only include all rows where the reference number does not exist in any rows in the 2nd query.
