diff of two text files

Given two files of the same format (For example number1|text1|number2) what is the command to print lines in file1 which do not occur in file2? diff command seems a bit complicated for me for this purpose. Please help!! Thank you very much.

I need it in awk as well as a shell script function.
I am doing it with nested while loops and parsing each line. Thought, there might be a command. Thanks for stopping by anyway.
