I have this line of code that includes rows if value SA is found:
SqlMethods.Like(h.hierarchy_string, "%" & SA & "%")

I would like to add another similar criteria that Excludes rows if the value is found.

Hi,

Have you try to use LIKE operator?

To gamarrojgg:
I could not get your solution to work.
h.hierarchy_string NOT LIKE "*" & SA & "*"
The NOT was not accepted for some reason.

but the solution from kaufmed does work in my case.

thanks for your suggestion; it may work for somebody else?
