SQL | Analysis and Query to find items that are not part of input list

I will have a few SQL series blogs and as a WCS developer, I feel it is very important to have good SQL skills.

--Exampple . Find all part numbers that are not found in orders table from the list (DSC_1,DSC_3, DSC_10, DSC_11)  in the XORDERITEMS table below.
Result: DSC_10, DSC_11

--1. Table creation:

CREATE TABLE XORDERITEMS (orders_id NUMBER,partnumber varchar2(255), status varchar2(1)) NOLOGGING;

--2. Data insertion into table
insert into /*+ APPEND */  XORDERITEMS values (1,'DSC_1','P');
insert into /*+ APPEND */  XORDERITEMS values (2,'DSC_2','Y');
insert into /*+ APPEND */  XORDERITEMS values (3,'DSC_3','c');
insert into /*+ APPEND */  XORDERITEMS values (4,'DSC_4','c');
insert into /*+ APPEND */  XORDERITEMS values (5,'DSC_5','c');
insert into /*+ APPEND */  XORDERITEMS values (6,'DSC_4','P');
insert into /*+ APPEND */  XORDERITEMS values (7,'DSC_3','y');
insert into /*+ APPEND */  XORDERITEMS values (8,'DSC_7','c');
insert into /*+ APPEND */  XORDERITEMS values (9,'DSC_8','P');
insert into /*+ APPEND */  XORDERITEMS values (10,'DSC_9','P');

--two alternates to fetch the above result.
select pno partnumber from
(SELECT TRIM(SUBSTR ( partnumber , INSTR (partnumber, ',', 1, level ) + 1 , INSTR (partnumber, ',', 1, level+1 ) - INSTR (partnumber, ',', 1, level) -1)) pno
FROM ( SELECT ','||'DSC_1,DSC_3,DSC_10,DSC_11'||',' AS partnumber FROM dual )
CONNECT BY level <= LENGTH(partnumber)-LENGTH(REPLACE(partnumber,',',''))-1 )
where pno not in (select partnumber from XORDERITEMS);

--Alternate Query
select pno partnumber from
(select 'DSC_1' pno from dual
select 'DSC_3' pno from dual
select 'DSC_10' pno from dual
select 'DSC_11' pno from dual)
where pno not in (select partnumber from XORDERITEMS);


  1. It turned out outrageous at that time any s / s sport activity follow this marketed for your equal cost as the check out via some other designs. The actual parallel concerning the van and watch is actually fun, additionally, the quantities tend to be effectively an identical for each.
