Hi, Ricardo.  To accomplish the same thing without using sub-selects,
you can use a LEFT JOIN.  Here is how:

    SELECT t1.field1
    FROM   table1 t1 LEFT JOIN table2 t2 ON (t1.field1 = t2.field2)
    WHERE  t2.field2 IS NULL

MySQL will support sub-selects in version 3.23.24, which is still a
few months away.
