Is there any limit for the "NOT" operator?


Hi Team,

I just want to know is there any limit for the "NOT" operator, same like join has? if yes, what is the limit?

Thank you.

While I am not aware of limits for use of NOT, following two points should always be considered:

1) For search performance avoid using NOT, since inclusion is better than exclusion.

2) Both NOT and != are used to exclude results from search, however behavior is different for both.

The NOT operator does exactly as it sounds.. It will exclude any string after NOT without limits.
