FilterZen: Feedback Forum > Does Not Contain Operator


I am wondering if you can utilize some kind of absence operator such as "Does Not Contain" in CAML direct filtering mode.

What I am trying to do is show several profile objects which do not have a particular office, there are several offices I want to exclude.

Hi Jaymz,

unfortunately in 10+ years of SharePoint MS has never managed to include a generic NOT operator combinable with other operators such as Contains, nor have they ever built a NotContains operator.

However, if you only want to exclude "several" offices, I believe you could make do with the Not-Equals operator?
