SQL Like with Multiple Values

I need to add a filter with multiple "Not LIke" in my query.  Similar to how you do it to like the "In" query.

Select *
From  Item_Master
Where Item_ID In ('ABC', 'DDD', '123GAS')

Issue is that the string for not like can be one or many and dynamic.  So I do not want to defy multiple "Not Like" in my query.

If you have a dynamic criteria you can only achieve this with a dynamic query (construct the query in runtime).

You will need to append and build the filter using or/and clauses
Select * from item_master where  not  (item_ID like 'AB%' or item_ID like 'DD%')

Dynamic SQL is the most common solution, generating a string query and using sp_executesql to run it. You can also try something like this:
DECLARE @NotLike TABLE (NotLike VARCHAR(25))

--	Dynamically insert your terms:
INSERT INTO @NotLike (NotLike) VALUES 
	('ABC'),
	('DDD'),
	('123GAS')

Select *
From  Item_Master t1
	LEFT JOIN @NotLike t2
		-- Strange, but this works:
		ON t1.Item_ID LIKE '%' + t2.NotLike + '%'
-- Exclude ones where there IS a match:
WHERE t2.NotLike IS NULL
