    Where is my current query that works:
    SELECT AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileZnyxPartNumber,
    AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileDescription,
    AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileLifecyclePhase
    FROM AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor LEFT JOIN MentorPartLibrary ON
    AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileZnyxPartNumber =
    MentorPartLibrary.MentorPartNumber
    WHERE (((AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileZnyxPartNumber) Not Like "220-*")
    AND ((AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileLifecyclePhase)<>"INACTIVE") AND
    ((MentorPartLibrary.MentorPartNumber) Is Null));


    However I want to include more "NOT LIKE" conditions, for example, Not Like
    220-* or 225-* or 255-*. When I add more conditions the query does not run
    correctly.

    By the way, I have tried the opposite where I include more than one "LIKE"
    conditions and it runs correctly.
    SELECT AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileZnyxPartNumber,
    AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileDescription,
    AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileLifecyclePhase
    FROM AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor LEFT JOIN MentorPartLibrary ON
    AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileZnyxPartNumber =
    MentorPartLibrary.MentorPartNumber
    WHERE (((AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileZnyxPartNumber) Like "1??-*" Or
    (AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileZnyxPartNumber) Like "204-*" Or
    (AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileZnyxPartNumber) Like "21?-*") AND
    ((AgileAVL4comparing2Mentor.AgileLifecyclePhase)<>"INACTIVE") AND
    ((MentorPartLibrary.MentorPartNumber) Is Null));

    What is the deal with "NOT LIKE" ?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
