I am new to Postgresql and am struggling with how to test for NOT null records. I'm using ODBC from within VFP as follows:

SQLEXEC(connhndl,"select id as shipid,name as shipto,city as shipcity, state_id from res_partner where not null state_id","shipto")

What is the correct syntax to achieve this?
