Here's the rubif any y is NULL, then the entire predicate is FALSE, because x <> NULL is FALSE. 50 Tip Be sure to filter out NULLs inside the inner query when using NOT IN. Take advantage of the ISNULL() and COALESCE() functions. ) Using Correlated Subqueries A correlated subquery is one where the "inner" SELECT is dependent upon a value from the "outer" SELECT.
