I am trying to create a query that will tell me if the clientcodewordposition is in tbltagwords but not in tblwords.

I thought this would do it:
but it doest

SELECT TW.ClientCodeWordPosition, sub.ClientCodeWordPosition
FROM TblWordTags  TW LEFT JOIN TblWordTags ON (TW.ClientCodeWordPosition = TblWordTags.ClientCodeWordPosition)

join ( select W.ClientCodeWordPosition
	FROM TblWords W
	where w.ClientCodeWordPosition is null
	GROUP BY W.ClientCodeWordPosition ) sub

	on TW.ClientCodeWordPosition=sub.ClientCodeWordPosition
	GROUP BY TW.ClientCodeWordPosition, sub.ClientCodeWordPosition

I'm not sure on what you pretend to do. Can you post some sample data for better understanding?

if pk in TblWordTags  is 'L5EMW_T_6' (ClientCodeWordPosition is pk field) and does not appear in tblWords (ClientCodeWordPosition is pk field)  then give output so I can delete it from tblwordtags.

L5EMW_T_6' was just an example. i am looking for orphaned codes as the tblword will get updated from time to time.

This gives you all non existence words:
SELECT ClientCodeWordPosition 
FROM TblWordTags  
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT 1 
              FROM tblWords 
              WHERE tblWords.ClientCodeWordPosition=TblWordTags.ClientCodeWordPosition)

Open in new window

and this is the DELETE command that you'll need:
DELETE
FROM TblWordTags  
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT 1 
              FROM tblWords 
              WHERE tblWords.ClientCodeWordPosition=TblWordTags.ClientCodeWordPosition)

Sometimes is better to drop all and start again taking another root.
