want to bypass line it string is found using awk

this will happen inside a korn shell script. thinking 'awk' is the best tool but am open to suggestions. Am looking for a string in a data file with about 100 lines. If the string is found it means the line is no good and i want to skip printing this line. If string is NOT found, i want to print the whole line. So i want to create a new file without the bad lines.
