I hope this is simpler than I think.

I'm used to working with Paradox or Access and their query screens ( and some SQL statements ). The method for finding "does not contian" or "does not equal" in there programs is easy. generally you use <> or !=. How do you do it in FileMaker ?

What if I want some items but not others ? Example:

I want all records that contain California as a state, SanBernardino as a County but do not contain Apple Valley.

Does not the omit box make the entire seach a " Does not contain " ?

You can and should use multiple requests. One request is for California and San Bernardino, the other request is to omit Apple Valley.

This will find all records in San Bernardino, California, while ommitting all those in Apple Valley.
