Help with selection query

I am trying to find the records that exist in a table (WOEQLIST0 that do not exist in another table (WOC)
with a sub selection within the table (WOEQLIST)
I have tried
Select WOEQLIST.WONUM, WOEQLIST.EQNUM, WOEQLIST.CLOSEDATE from WOEQLIST, WO, WOC
where WOEQLIST.WONUM = WO.WONUM and WO.CLOSEDATE = '1900-01-01 00:00:00.000' and
WO.REQUESTDATE < '2014-01-01 00:00:00.000' and WOEQLIST.WONUM <> WOC.WONUM

But it does not work, stopped it after bring back 36K

You are not joining all the tables mentioned in the FROM clause. You have joined WOEQLIST and WO tables but not WOC.

Try this:

Select W1.WONUM,
   W1.EQNUM, 
   W1.CLOSEDATE from WOEQLIST W1
   LEFT JOIN WOC W2 ON W2.WONUM = W1.WONUM
 where W2.CLOSEDATE = '1900-01-01 00:00:00.000' 
 and 
 W2.REQUESTDATE < '2014-01-01 00:00:00.000' 
 and W2 IS NULL

Open in new window



OR

SELECT Select W1.WONUM,
   W1.EQNUM, 
   W1.CLOSEDATE 
FROM  WOEQLIST W1
WHERE W2.CLOSEDATE = '1900-01-01 00:00:00.000' 
 and 
 W2.REQUESTDATE < '2014-01-01 00:00:00.000' 
AND NOT EXISTS 
    (SELECT * 
     FROM WOC W2 
     WHERE W1.WONUM = W2.WONUM)

Open in new window


I think W2.CLOSEDATE should be W1.CLOSEDATE but I let you decide that.

Use NOT EXISTS:
Select WOEQLIST.WONUM, WOEQLIST.EQNUM, WOEQLIST.CLOSEDATE 
 from WOEQLIST, WO
 where WOEQLIST.WONUM = WO.WONUM
  and WO.CLOSEDATE = '1900-01-01 00:00:00.000'
  and WO.REQUESTDATE < '2014-01-01 00:00:00.000'
  and not exists (select 1 from WOC where WOEQLIST.WONUM = WOC.WONUM)
