Linq2SQL: “NOT IN” SQL statement

March 23, 2010

“NOT IN” SQL clause is a very common sql statement in most queries.
Is there something similar in Linq?  Of course!
Marco Russo’s blog post explain it very well.

translated to Linq query:

var query =
from c in dc.Customers
where !(from o in dc.Orders
select o.CustomerID)
select c;

At risk are not only sat-nav users, but also critical national infrastructure.
