Thanks for your reply,

That is almost what I want but I would like to be able to specify the project id that the user isn't allocated to, is this possible?

In other words SELECT ALL USERS THAT ARENT ALLOCATED TO PROJECT X.

Also could you direct me to a tutorial on JOINS, this seems to be something I need to learn,

Many thanks Received on Fri Mar 21 2003 - 16:46:22 CST
