I want to query and get only itemno that does not starts with '*' (like *100037-000), and RCD  not 'y'  . This column is char(25).  It still return * itemno in front.
     SELECT ITEMNO FROM table_1 WHERE rcd not like ('*%') or rcd is not null or rcd <> 'n'
     select distinct(rcd) from tables_1
     results : Y, N, NULL
