The issue was as you said the incorrect use of the "ANY" operator eg to select records which have the string "LOCAL" or "CENTRAL" in the specified text column I use this syntax (which works fine):
LIKE ANY ('%LOCAL'%,'%CENTRAL%')
I needed to reverse this this (eg exclude records which have the string "LOCAL" or "CENTRAL"), so I added a NOT operator:
NOT LIKE ANY ('%LOCAL'%,'%CENTRAL%')
As you pointed out, this doesn't work, as it translates as "Exclude records that have the string "LOCAL" *and* "CENTRAL". To fix this I took your suggestion and changed the ANY to an ALL:
NOT LIKE ALL ('%LOCAL'%,'%CENTRAL%')
...this generated the required effect of excluding records that had the string "LOCAL" *or* "CENTRAL".
Seems so obvious now.
Thanks for the help,
