Crystal Reports: Using right table as a filter to left table data

I have two tables joined in my report.  The Left table contains all the data elements (fields) I want to display in my report.  The right table contains a list of data (a single field) with values matching some of the entries in left table for the linked field (PATIENT_NAME).

I would like to display all PATIENT_NAME entries NOT found in the right table. essentially using the right table as a list of PATIENT_NAME entries to filter out of the report.  If the name exists in the right table I do not want that name displayed on the report.

How can I best accomplish this request?

Thnaks,

Left outer join the tables and put ISNULL(PATIENT_NAME) in your record selection criteria

Use Left join and put in the where clause check for PATIENT_NAME = null

the corresponding SQL will look like this:

SELECT t1.*
FROM Table1 t1 LEFT HOIN Table2 t2 ON t1.PATIENT_NAME=t2.PATIENT_NAME
WHERE t2.PATIENT_NAME is null
