MySQL Join on NOT Condition

/ Published in: MySQL
Save to your folder(s)

This was a strange case where I had to select all the items that were NOT assigned to a user. The data structure assumes that there is a 1 to 1 relationship between a user and an item. This is a simplified version of the query, but it's one of those queries that takes a while to figure out.

Copy this code and paste it in your HTML
  1. SELECT, FROM items LEFT OUTER JOIN users ON users.item_id = where users.item_id is null
