Well, the NOT IN clause can select from an embedded SELECT statement
to further limit the selections, but I would wonder whether such a
complicated statement would be necessary in the first place. Not that
I know what jbv has in mind, but I would think that possibly selecting
on what you're looking for rather than what you're *not* looking for
might be a shorter select statement. Or selecting on some other
criterion or using a LIKE selector might do the trick.
