If I have 2 tables:

CREATE TABLE Items20123( Id VarChar(15), UserName VarChar(50))
CREATE TABLE Items2011( Id VarChar(15), UserName VarChar(50))

How do I use the join command to list all of the Id's from the Items2012 table that don't exist in the Items2011 table?

I tried

Select * from Items2012 Inner Join Items2011 on Items2012.item <> Items2011.item

But got an out of memory exception.

There are about 35,000 in each table.

use a Left Join

Select * from
Items2012 LEFT Join Items2011 on Items2012.[ID] = Items2011.[ID]
where  Items2011.[ID] is null

Thanks guys. That's just what I needed. I used the first suggestion but appreciate the simplicity of the second.
