Trying to include the result set in the base table



I have a weird one that is hard to explain.
S‌o I am looking for any Providers that are not listed as a Primary. So I did a select PROVID from PROVSPECIALTY (#primary) table which gives me about 73000 rows of PROVIDs. Then I did a select PROVID from PROVSPECIALTY where SPECTYPE = 'SECONDARY' (#sec) which gives 3600 rows. Then I ran select distinct * from #sec where provid not in (select distinct * from #primary) which gives me what I want which is 192 rows.
W‌hat my question is is how can I join the 192 records to my base table to get all the fields needed for those provids?
I have tried every kind of join, where exists, etc.

T‌his is the ‌base table that gets all the fields:

select distinct mp.Affiliationid, a1.provid as "PCP Provid", p1.Fullname, p1.Provtype, a1.Affiltype, a1.affiliateid as "PCP Affiliate", p2.fullname as Fullname2, p2.provtype as Provtype2, a1.payflag as Payflag1, a1.PCP, mp.Enrollid, mp.Pcptype, Spectype, mp.Specialtycode, z.description as 'Specialty Description', mp.Paytoaffilid, a2.provid as "Payto Provid", p3.fullname as Fullname3, p3.provtype as Provtype3, a2.affiltype as Affiltype2, a2.affiliateid as "Payto Affiliate", a2.payflag, p4.fullname as Fullname4, p4.provtype as Provtype4, a2.payflag as Payflag2, a2.pcp as PCP2, cast(mp.effdate as date) as PCPEffdate, cast(mp.termdate as date) as PCPTermdate, mp.Svczip, mp.Createid, mp.Createdate, mp.Lastupdate, mp.Updateid, ci.ContractID, cast(ek.effdate as date) as EnrollEff, cast(ek.termdate as date) as EnrollTerm, Flag = '' into #BASE from qnxt.dbo.memberpcp mp join qnxt.dbo.affiliation a1 (nolock) on mp.affiliationid = a1.affiliationid join qnxt.dbo.affiliation a2 (nolock) on mp.paytoaffilid = a2.affiliationid join qnxt.dbo.provider p1 (nolock) on a1.provid = p1.provid join qnxt.dbo.provider p2 (nolock) on a1.affiliateid = p2.provid join qnxt.dbo.provider p3 (nolock) on a2.provid = p3.provid join qnxt.dbo.provider p4 (nolock) on a2.affiliateid = p4.provid join qnxt.dbo.provspecialty y (nolock) on p1.provid = y.provid join qnxt.dbo.specialty z (nolock) on mp.specialtycode = z.specialtycode left join qnxt.dbo.affiliation_audit aa (nolock) on a1.affiliationid = aa.affiliationid left join qnxt.dbo.provider pr (nolock) on aa.provid = pr.provid left join qnxt.dbo.entity e (nolock) on p1.entityid =e.entid left join qnxt.dbo.contractinfo ci (nolock) on mp.paytoaffilid = ci.affiliationid join QNXT.[dbo].[enrollkeys] ek (nolock) on mp.enrollid = ek.enrollid join QNXT.dbo.memberpcp x (nolock) on x.enrollid = ek.enrollid where mp.termdate > '2017-01-01'‌‌

I‌ wasn't sure what information to include in terms of data but if someone could give me a lead on how to solve this I will be happy to include test data. Thank you for any help!‌


are the 73000 PROVID distinct or do you actually, really have that many providers?
please list out the distinct list of SPECTYPE s


Yes distinct there are 72903.


You said "S‌o I am looking for any Providers that are not listed as a Primary."
how many types of SPECTYPE do you have


Maybe something like this...

   With primaryProviders
     As (

  Where mp.termdate > '2017-01-01'‌‌

Or - if you can reduce your multiple temp tables into a single query...

  Where mp.termdate > '2017-01-01'‌‌
    And mp.provid In ({your query to identify just those providers to be included})

If you must use these temp tables:

  Where mp.termdate > '2017-01-01'‌‌
    And mp.provid In (Select sp.provid From #sec sp)

Or you can join to that temp table on provid...


I am trying to use the CTE but I am getting an error and I am not that familiar with CTEs.
I added in my fields but I am getting an error on the comma before specialtyproviders.

With primaryProviders
As (
From qnxt.dbo.provspecialty ps
, specialtyProviders
As (
From qnxt.dbo.provspecialty ps
And provid Not In (Select PROVID From primaryProviders pp)



I have formatted the SQL

Makes it easier to read and follow

hope it helps

Check your parentheses - you are missing at least one...and also make sure you use the alias with the column.

Select ps.PROVID
And ps.provid Not In (Select pp.PROVID From primaryProviders pp)


Ok I fixed the alias and parentheses issues and got it to run, but it is returning the same results and when I would write the select provid from provspecialty where provid not in select provid from secondary). It is just returning column headers. I get that I must be doing something wrong but what bothers me is I don't understand why it is returning zero rows. It seems like a pretty straightforward ask from SQL I mean :slight_smile:


When you say it is returning the same results - the same results as what? If you run just your base query - do you get results?

Try changing the join to the specialty Providers to an outer join and verify that you are seeing values from that table.

You can also modify the base query using an EXISTS:

              FROM qnxt.dbo.provspecialty ss
             WHERE ss.provid = mp.provid
               AND ss.SPECTYPE = 'SECONDARY'
               AND NOT EXISTS (SELECT *
                                 FROM qnxt.dbo.provspecialty ps
                                WHERE ps.provid = ss.provid
                                  AND ps.SPECTYPE = 'PRIMARY'))

If you are still not getting any results - then you need to start looking at the joins and other criteria being used.
