I am pretty new to Access and am having trouble with a join query that I am trying to create. I have 3 tables that I have joined in the design view. The 3 tables all have different information except for invoice number, which is common to all 3. I would like the query to provide me with all the invoice numbers on Table 1 that are not in Table 2 nor in Table 3. In essence, the invoice numbers on Table 1 that are unique to Table 1. I probably will pull some other information in, but I would like the result to be a list of invoice numbers that are in Table 1 and not in the other Tables 2.

Since I am new to Access and still trying to learn, I am having great difficulty in doing this. I suspect it is probably somewhat easy to do. I am using the design view, since that is all I am familiar with right now.

Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

since you are new to Access the easiest way to do this would be with 3 queries. Use the unmatched query wizard to get the unmatched rows from table1 to table2, then another to get the unmatched rows from table1 to table3, and the a third to get the unmatched rows from query1 to query2

I don't seem to have an unmatched query wizard. I went to the query wizard, but nothing was mentioned about unmatched.

If I have joined Tables 1 and 2 in the design view, what would I need to put in the criteria or any other field in order to have it show me the invoice numbers in Table 1 that are not in Table 2?

if you click NEW when viewing the query list the unmatched query wizard will be one of the options.
