Where clause not working correctly SQL

SELECT dbo_Data.WWGSKU, dbo_Data.SlsStatus
FROM dbo_Data
WHERE (((dbo_Data.SlsStatus) Not Like "WG" Or (dbo_Data.SlsStatus)="WV" Or (dbo_Data.SlsStatus)="DG" Or (dbo_Data.SlsStatus)="DV"));

The results in this query are still returning WV DG AND DV ITEMS ?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

WHERE (((dbo_Data.SlsStatus) Not Like "WG" Or (dbo_Data.SlsStatus)="WV" Or (dbo_Data.SlsStatus)="DG" Or (dbo_Data.SlsStatus)="DV"));

This syntax gives results for WV, DG, and DV as you mentioned, because of Not Like and Or operators.

If you change = to Not Like, you get the results as for Not In (...)
In this specific syntax, <> may be used instead of Not Like and =.
