Query in DB2

I need to write a query in DB2 to get  all the records in BALANCETABLE where the year_id is '2012', period_id is 0, and souce_id does NOT contain within the value 'abc123' .  My Statment looks like this:    

SELECT * FROM "BALANCETABLE" where  year_ID = '2012' and period_ID = 0 and souceinterid NOT like 'VDB193' ;

What am i doing wrong here

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi cutler,

You need to include one or more "wild cards" in the string

Find all items starting with the string:

  LIKE 'VBD193%'

Find all items ending with the string:

  LIKE '%VBD193'

Find all items containing the string:

  LIKE '%VBD193%'

Good Luck,
