JOIN / Not existing records as blank cells in the results

JOIN / Not existing records as blank cells in the results

(OP)
hi

I have data in two tables.

NAMES
ID    Name
1    FIRST
2    SECOND
...

CODES
ID    CodeType    Code
1    A        xyz
1    B        abc
1    C        gfd
2    A        xdz
2    B        dca
3       A               xvz
...

I want to join the two tables to get the records from NAMES with the Code of CodeType "C". if there is no record with the codetype c for a given ID  a blank cell should appear, so that I can identify for which ID's the CodeType C is mising.
 (as below for ID 2)

Result Example
ID    Name    Code
1    FIRST    gfd
2    SECOND    ----
...

Does anybody have any idea what should the sql code look like?
Please help!

RE: JOIN / Not existing records as blank cells in the results

select TABLE1.ID,NAME,TABLE2.CODE from table1 LEFT JOIN table2 on TABLE1.ID=TABLE2.id and CODTYPE='C'

RE: JOIN / Not existing records as blank cells in the results

Correction:

select NAMES.ID, NAME.NAMES, CODES.CODE from NAMES LEFT JOIN CODES on NAMES.ID=CODES.ID and CODTYPE='C'
