Is it possible to use the NOT operator in a text field or emulate this using a script?

I am trying to do a multiple find using the following scenario:

User Name (txt field)

Location (txt field)

I want to find all records in ..... (Location), but NOT ..... (User).

Thanks Tom

When automating the Find Request, how using a script can you omit the results from one of the searches - my database also hides the status area which displays this choice.

What i really want is a check box field within my layout which effectivily acts as the hidden omit option.

Any ideas

Two steps. You can have a global field formatted as a checkbox for the user to indicate they wish to omit a particular value (a "not" find). In your scripting to implement this you will need to 1) toggle the status area to "show", enter the data from the find request (set field steps), and finally use the "Omit" script step. In Find mode this has the effect of checking th omit box in the status area. The status area MUST be visible for this script step to work correctly. After the find completes, you can then hide the status area once again.
