Select or Delete based on text criteris

I am trying to use a delete query in Access 2013.  I have done it a million times before in other versions.  If I put in my criteria "Ohio", Up pops all the Ohio data.  If I put <>"Ohio" I get nothing, Not In("Ohio"), or Not In('Ohio') still nothing.  Same results for a select query.  The field is Short text 256 Characters.  Any help would be appreciated.  Yes there is other data.

"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.

perhaps 2 things to verify:

1) go to SQL view for your View and check what SQL was being generated.. share it here if necessary
2) check your data, make sure there's data available in your selection criteria

keep in mind that NULL values will be handled differently.

OK. Here is a Delete that works:
DELETE tblNonEmp.*, tblNonEmp.ReprocessAction
FROM tblNonEmp
WHERE (((tblNonEmp.ReprocessAction)="Reprocess"));

And same as Select
SELECT tblNonEmp.*, tblNonEmp.ReprocessAction
FROM tblNonEmp
WHERE (((tblNonEmp.ReprocessAction)="Reprocess"));

And trying to get the Opposite Select that does not work
SELECT tblNonEmp.*, tblNonEmp.ReprocessAction
FROM tblNonEmp
WHERE ((Not (tblNonEmp.ReprocessAction)="Reprocess"));

and not work
SELECT tblNonEmp.*, tblNonEmp.ReprocessAction
FROM tblNonEmp
WHERE (((tblNonEmp.ReprocessAction)<>"Reprocess"));

SELECT tblNonEmp.*, tblNonEmp.ReprocessAction
FROM tblNonEmp
WHERE (((tblNonEmp.ReprocessAction) Not In ("Reprocess")));

I think Dale has my answer and I need a second criteria row for isnull But I don't remember needing to do this before.  Any help is appreciated.

Why is a field specified,  tblNonEmp.ReprocessAction, in a delete query?

The null was the issue.
