Using the SQL MINUS Operator

Using the SQL MINUS Operator

The SQL MINUS operator makes use of two SQL statements. It takes all the results from the first statement and subtracts out the ones that are present in the second statement to get the final answer.

A quick look at how it works:

SELECT expression1, expression2, ... FROM table1MINUSSELECT expression1, expression2, ... FROM table2

This will show you all the records that do not match the data in the second table
