Comparing two fields when one is null

I have a set of queries that compare the values of columns in two different tables and returns values for those that are different.  

In the attached file, it works fine for my City Query, however, with my Company Query you can see that when one of the tables has a null value it doesn't work.  

Any suggestions as to how to address this?  Thanks!

Thanks, this is it!

I also added a 3rd line to the query reversing the null/not null so that the Compare would work both ways.
