Hi all, I need to scan a field for a specific string and exclude all records with that specific string. This string in the filed looks like this: 'WRK 08:06, LNCH 00:54, GRACE 00:02' I want to excule all records containg "LNCH" in the time_code field. I tried like but that does not seem to work. Can anyone help? Thanks
