Script to find NOT common strings in two files

Hi all,

I'd like you to help or give any advise about the following:

I have two (2) files, file1 and file2, both files have information common to each other. The contents of file1 is a subset of the contents of file2:

file1:
errormsgadmin
esdp
esgservices
esignipa
iprice
ipvpn
irm
ishare
james
jasper
jcms

file2:
esolutions
mboards
metric
metrics
mib
mms
errormsgadmin
esdp
esgservices
esign
esolutions
esolutions
ess
ewebsync
framework
gchwf
global

I would like to make a script that displays all content that is in file2 but is not in file1. Or rather, to erase the contents from file2 that is included in the file1.

the output would look like this:

esolutions
ess
ewebsync
framework
gchwf
global
mboards
metric
metrics
mib
mms

Any sugestion is welcome, thank you.
