Another way of coding this where-clause

I have this where clause that i needed to modify. I want to exlcude
any values 050102xxxx (the first 6 values start with 050102).

I did it by adding an "and" clause. You can see this value is in the OR clause already. Can I exlcude in the OR clause?

where  (    m.loc_id   LIKE '2001%' 
           OR m.loc_id LIKE '2002%'
           OR m.loc_id LIKE '2003%'
           OR m.loc_id LIKE '1001%'
           OR m.loc_id LIKE '1003%' 
           OR m.Loc_ID LIKE '1002%' 
           OR m.loc_id  BETWEEN '0008000000' AND '0171999999' 
           [b]OR m.Loc_ID BETWEEN '0501000000' AND '0501999999'  [/b]          
          )   [b]and m.loc_id not like '050102%'[/b]

Maybe...

 OR (m.Loc_ID LIKE '0501%' AND m.Loc_ID NOT like '050102%')

That is pretty OK, it has to be on an AND condition outside the parenthesis as you put it.
Should be fine
