SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT CUSTNMBR, CUSTNAME, ADDRESS1, ADDRESS2, CITY, STATE, ZIP, PHONE1
FROM         dbo.RM00101
WHERE     (NOT (ADDRESS1 = ADDRESS2)) AND (NOT (CUSTCLAS = 'OBS')) AND (NOT (CUSTCLAS = 'EMP')) AND (NOT (CUSTCLAS = 'EXP')) AND 
                      (NOT (CUSTCLAS = 'ADV')) AND (NOT (CUSTCLAS = '')) AND (NOT (CUSTCLAS = 'VEN')) AND (NOT (CUSTNMBR LIKE '%MISC%')) AND 
                      (ADRSCODE = 'PRIMARY') AND (NOT (ZIP = ' ')) AND (NOT (ZIP LIKE '%N%')) AND (NOT (ZIP = '14624')) AND (NOT (STATE = ' ')) AND (NOT (STATE = '67')) 
                      AND (NOT (ADDRESS1 = '100 airpark drive')) AND (NOT (ADDRESS1 LIKE '%PAYABLE%')) AND (NOT (ADDRESS1 LIKE 'Business%')) AND 
                      (NOT (ADDRESS1 LIKE 'Attn%')) AND (NOT (CUSTCLAS LIKE 'CF')) AND (NOT (CUSTCLAS LIKE 'FA')) AND (NOT (CUSTCLAS LIKE 'PD')) AND

Or if you want to ignore spaces:

LEN(RTRIM(LTRIM(STATE)))>2

Thanks, Both worked but Erick's gave the best result because it ignored the spaces.
