Find Records that Don't Have a Match in Both Tables


This video covers the ANTI JOIN. This occurs in SQL when two tables returns rows from the first table where no matches are found in the second table. It's consider the opposite of a semi-join when in two tables the result returns rows from the first table where one or more matches are found in the second table.

However the workaround in to use the left and right anti join features and then append the results. Confused? Well check out the video to see how it could be done.
