If I wanted to find all instances of the characters 'xxx' in columns 1 -6 I'd use: FIND 'XXX' ALL 1 6. No problem. Now, what if I wanted to find all non 'xxx' characters in columns 1 - 6? Does anyone know how to do that? Thanks.

Also handy is the FLIP command.

X ALL hide all lines
F 'XXX' 1 6 ALL show target lines only
FLIP show non-matched lines only
