loop through records and disregard equal values

P: 1
hi everyone, i need some assistance.

i need to compare records from table A (database A) and records from table B (database B) and display list of this records. But i need to filter the list first and disregard agencies in table A that is already existing in table B. Anyway here's a draft of my code:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Set RS = SERVER.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
  2. dts = "SELECT ID,officename,abbrev FROM lu_office ORDER BY ID"
  3. dts, cn_dts
  4. iddts = RS.getRows()
  6. Set RS_map = SERVER.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
  7. map = "SELECT * FROM map_agencies ORDER BY ID_dts"
  8. map,cn_yass
  9. dtsmap = RS_map.getRows()
  11. For i = LBound(iddts,2) to UBound(iddts,2)
  12.     if iddts(0,i) <> dis then
  13.     For j = LBound(dtsmap,2) to UBound(dtsmap,2)
  14.         if iddts(0,i) <> dtsmap(1,j) then
  15.             Response.Write iddts(0,i) &" - "&dtsmap(1,j)&"<br>"
  16.         end if
  17.         if iddts(0,i) = dtsmap(1,j) then
  18.             dis = dtsmap(1,j)
  19.             Response.Write "DO NOT SHOW THIS: " & dtsmap(1,j) & "<br>"
  20.             exit For
  21.         end if
  22.     next
  23.     end if
  24. next
its fine until for i loop for the third time coz the list again shows records existing in table B.

need help badly.
Thanks in advance!

Look up the sql keyword "union", see if that answers your question (by default disregards duplicates in two different tables).
