I'm trying to show records which does not include a field name and the rest. For example if the in the Field called Surname i did not want to show anything with SH then i would do not like SH*. But i have another field from another table called Initials and i do not want to show anything from Initials field in the Surname field. Eg Not like [Initials]&"*" this does nor seem to work, i do not know why. If i do like [initials]&"*" then this will work. Can you please help me with the Not like pease.
