where field B is duplicated and field K is not null (SQL)

I don't even know if this is possible in SQL.
Some records have a duplicate value in Column B (2 records).  One of the records will also have a value in Column K.  I don't want to see these records.

It this possible?

better post sample data and identify which records you don't want to see.

attached is some sample data.
as you'll notice the second field (Account) is the same for the last two records.  However only the second last record has a comment of "PRIMARY PIN SAME AS SPOUSE PIN".  This record I don't want to see.

Note that another record also has "PRIMARY PIN SAME AS SPOUSE PIN" as a comment, but the ACCOUNT is not duplicated, therefore I would still like to see this record.

If you paste the above sample in Excel as TEXT it will delimit properly into each column.

for some reason that always returns no records.
if I use In instead of Not In (without checking Column K), I get all the records as expected.  If the subquery is just  Not In (select [Account ID] from temp as A) .. it still doesn't return anything.

Here's a round-about way, but it seems to work. Make the following queries:

SELECT YourTable.Account, Count(YourTable.Account) AS AccountCount
FROM YourTable
GROUP BY YourTable.Account;

SELECT YourTable.Company, YourTable.Account, YourTable.ID, YourTable.[First Name], YourTable.PIN, YourTable.Received, YourTable.[Joint PIN], YourTable.[Last Name], YourTable.Status, YourTable.Comment, YourTable.[Spouse Name], YourTable.[Spouse PIN], CountAccounts.AccountCount, IIf([AccountCount]>1 And Len([Comment])>1,"Yes","No") AS Filter
FROM YourTable INNER JOIN CountAccounts ON YourTable.Account = CountAccounts.Account
WHERE (((IIf([AccountCount]>1 And Len([Comment])>1,"Yes","No"))="No"));

I used the Len function in the filter criteria as is null and "" didn't seem to work. I tested it on your data and it returned 8 records.
