T-SQL Select

I am using T-SQL (SQL Server 2000) and I want to exclude customers who meet two different criteria simultaneously.  For example below:
Select * from Customers
where
State = 'New York'
and
PurchaseDate <'2012-10-01'
The problem is I don't want to exclude all Customers who state = 'New York'
only those customers that meet both criteria do I want to exclude.  Any ideas on how to do this?  Thanks for the help.

You speak of excluding New York but the current SQL selectsd only New York and where the Pruchase date is < 2012-10-01. Please clarify

I think I figured it out.  Please advise if this is correct
Select * from Customers
where not (State = 'New York' and PurchaseDate <'2012-10-01')

Yes, That would have been what I would have suggested - will give you everyone other that those in New York with a purchase date prior to 1 October last year.

That doesn't need a close request - just accept and share the points to my solutions. This closes the question.
