I am using the following SQL query to pull matching data.  Some of the results may not have data for fields sLatitude and sLongitude.  How do I exclude these records when these fields are empty in my SQL query?
SELECT * FROM Residential, property_coordinates

        WHERE sSubdivision='Pines'

        AND Residential.sMLSNumber=property_coordinates.sMLSNumber

Assuming that "empty" means "null", do:

SELECT *
        FROM Residential, property_coordinates
        WHERE sSubdivision='Pines'
        AND Residential.sMLSNumber=property_coordinates.sMLSNumber
        AND sLatitude IS NOT NULL
        AND sLongitude IS NOT NULL ;

Try with this
SELECT * FROM Residential, property_coordinates

        WHERE sSubdivision='Pines'

        AND Residential.sMLSNumber=property_coordinates.sMLSNumber

AND sLatitude is not NULL and sLatitude != '' 

and sLongitude is not NULL and sLongitude != ''
