Query Table While Excluding Other Table's Matches

5+ Year Member

Msg#: 4580710 posted 5:52 pm on Jun 3, 2013 (gmt 0)

I have two tables:

id = unique, key
name = place name
neighborhood = neighborhood of the place
city = city of the place
country = country of the place

id = unique, key

Currently I am running a query on the places table:

SELECT * FROM places WHERE (neighborhood="" OR city="" OR country="") LIMIT 5;

How can I modify my query to exclude any rows with their id on the flags table?

The following should work:
FROM places p LEFT OUTER JOIN flags f ON p.id=f.id
WHERE (p.neighborhood="" OR p.city="" OR p.country="") AND f.id IS NULL
