Okay, here's my formula, trying to find the phone descriptor values that don't conform to a set list. Problem is I'm also pulling values that are null. Tried the not isnull section but now I'm pulling all the values that are not null across all four phone descriptors. Thanks in advance for the help!

isnull({Q_CLIENTS.DateClosed}) and

(not ({Q_CLIENTS.PhoneDesc1} in ["Assistant", "Cell", "Cell2", "Home", "Home Fax", "Home2", "Other", "Other Fax", "Pager", "Work", "Work Fax", "Work2"]) or
not ({Q_CLIENTS.PhoneDesc2} in ["Assistant", "Cell", "Cell2", "Home", "Home Fax", "Home2", "Other", "Other Fax", "Pager", "Work", "Work Fax", "Work2"]) or
not ({Q_CLIENTS.PhoneDesc3} in ["Assistant", "Cell", "Cell2", "Home", "Home Fax", "Home2", "Other", "Other Fax", "Pager", "Work", "Work Fax", "Work2"]) or
not ({Q_CLIENTS.PhoneDesc4} in ["Assistant", "Cell", "Cell2", "Home", "Home Fax", "Home2", "Other", "Other Fax", "Pager", "Work", "Work Fax", "Work2"])) and

not isnull({Q_CLIENTS.PhoneDesc1}) and
not isnull({Q_CLIENTS.PhoneDesc2}) and
not isnull({Q_CLIENTS.PhoneDesc3}) and
not isnull({Q_CLIENTS.PhoneDesc4})
