I have Customer table with Customer ID and Cust Name and other fields.

I have another Customer table Customer2

I need to find all the records in Customer2 that are not in Customer based on Customer ID and  Cust Name.
Ids may exist in both Names may be differant

I tried, but doesn't seem to work

SELECT * FROM CUSTOMER2 WHERE CUSTID NOT IN (SELECT CUSTID FROM CUSTOMER) AND
CUSTNAME NOT IN (SELECT CUSTNAME FROM CUSTOMER)

Give this a whirl..
SELECT c2.CustomerID, c2.CustomerName
FROM Customer2 c2
   -- LEFT JOIN means return all rows from c2..
   LEFT JOIN Customer c ON c2.CustomerID = c.CustomerID AND c2.CustomerName = c.CustomerName
--- then exclude the ones not found in Customer
WHERE c.CustomerID IS NULL
