Need "like" and "not like" parameters in the same field

Need "like" and "not like" parameters in the same field

Need "like" and "not like" parameters in the same field

Is it possible to write a WHERE statement for one field to perform the following instruction:

like "2011" but not like "CAL%" (short for "calibration")

There would be a couple other fields referenced in the query, but the instructions use straightforward language and aren't a problem.   

I am a new user to Maximo. I am not sure what my limitations are for writing queries.  I have experience with Access databases and some SQL language.

Thanks for your help  JKD

RE: Need "like" and "not like" parameters in the same field

I believe you should try

(fieldname like '%2011%' and fieldname not like 'CAL%')

along with whatever else you have
