Whoops, I missed the question...

I have to tables X and Y. See below.
X with columns A1 and A2.
Y with columns A1 and A3.

I want to have all elements from A1 in table X where there are no corresponding element A1 in Y.
Did that make sense?

select a1 from x
where a1 not in (select a1 from y)


or

select a1 from x
where not exists (select 1 from y where y.a1 = x.a1)


or

select a1 from x
minus
select a2 from y

Note, the minus version will implicitly return distinct values, that may or may not be what you want.
