File Search (CTRL-H) with excluding string

This question is not answered

Is it possible to use the search function and exclude a string which i dont want to find ?

Maybe to find every FOR EACH whithout NO-LOCK statement.

  • You might be able to use regular expressions for that. Personally, I have an intolerance for regexes so I try to stay away from them :)

    have a look at

  • If you check the regular expression at your right you can use something like this.
    I use it for searching combinations on one line.

    ^(?!.*no-lock)(.*for each)(.*$)
