Neutrals not connected?

What does it mean when an electrician says some of the neutrals are not connected in the outlets of my house? How is this fixed? Why didn't my tester show this problem?

An outlet would not work if the neutrals were not connected. A plug-in style tester would show nothing or "open neutral". Are you sure it was the neutral that isn't connected? Could it have been the ground?
