I am developing an Access application using SQL Server 2005

The following gives me the records that match between the 2 tables:

SELECT Right(C.OfficeNumber,3) + ' ' + C.CustomerNumber AS [Account Number]
FROM dbo.tblCustomersNew AS C
INNER JOIN dbo.tblProductsNew AS P
ON   C.CustomerNumber = P.CustomerNumber
AND C.OfficeNumber = P.OfficeNumber

How do you get the records that don't match between the 2 tables?

TIP: Access has an unmatched query wizard that will help you create the query.

Try something like this:

SELECT Right(C.OfficeNumber,3) + ' ' + C.CustomerNumber AS [Account Number]
FROM dbo.tblCustomersNew AS C
LEFT JOIN dbo.tblProductsNew AS P
ON   C.CustomerNumber = P.CustomerNumber
AND C.OfficeNumber = P.OfficeNumber 
WHERE
((P.CustomerNumber is Null) and (P.OfficeNumber is Null))

I'm using Access 2003 with Access as the front end and SQL Server 2005 as the back end database. I don't see the unmatched query wizard under these conditions. I am using an ADP type file extension.

I should have noted in my question that there is a 1 to many relationship between the dbo.tblCustomersNew table and the dbo.tblProductsNew table.

I executed this and it returned 0 records.

select count(*) from dbo.tblProductsNew returns  208565

SELECT Right(C.OfficeNumber,3) + ' ' + C.CustomerNumber AS [Account Number]
FROM dbo.tblCustomersNew AS C
INNER JOIN dbo.tblProductsNew AS P
ON   C.CustomerNumber = P.CustomerNumber
AND C.OfficeNumber = P.OfficeNumber             returns 207206 records

this will give you entries from each table that do not match... maybe another expert can combine them into one query

SELECT CustomerNumber  FROM dbo.tblCustomersNew WHERE CustomerNumber  not in (SELECT Right(C.OfficeNumber,3) + ' ' + C.CustomerNumber AS [Account Number]
FROM dbo.tblCustomersNew AS C
INNER JOIN dbo.tblProductsNew AS P
ON   C.CustomerNumber = P.CustomerNumber
AND C.OfficeNumber = P.OfficeNumber )

SELECT
CustomerNumber FROM dbo.tblProductsNew WHERE CustomerNumber  not in (SELECT Right(C.OfficeNumber,3) + ' ' + C.CustomerNumber AS [Account Number]
FROM dbo.tblCustomersNew AS C
INNER JOIN dbo.tblProductsNew AS P
ON   C.CustomerNumber = P.CustomerNumber
AND C.OfficeNumber = P.OfficeNumber )

SELECT
CustomerNumber FROM dbo.tblProductsNew WHERE CustomerNumber  not in (SELECT Right(C.OfficeNumber,3) + ' ' + C.CustomerNumber AS [Account Number]
FROM dbo.tblCustomersNew AS C
INNER JOIN dbo.tblProductsNew AS P
ON   C.CustomerNumber = P.CustomerNumber
AND C.OfficeNumber = P.OfficeNumber )

results set is 208565 which is the number of records in tblProductsNew

try this, i have removed your alias on CustomerNumber

SELECT
CustomerNumber FROM dbo.tblProductsNew WHERE CustomerNumber  not in (SELECT C.CustomerNumber
FROM dbo.tblCustomersNew AS C
INNER JOIN dbo.tblProductsNew AS P
ON   C.CustomerNumber = P.CustomerNumber
AND C.OfficeNumber = P.OfficeNumber )

SELECT CustomerNumber  FROM dbo.tblCustomersNew WHERE CustomerNumber  not in (SELECT  C.CustomerNumber
FROM dbo.tblCustomersNew AS C
INNER JOIN dbo.tblProductsNew AS P
ON   C.CustomerNumber = P.CustomerNumber
AND C.OfficeNumber = P.OfficeNumber )
