Filter by Item

I'm working on my super smokin' bird database and I need to filter by item. I want to say filter this without item 3 of myvar, but I can't remember how to do it. I can filter by strings, but if someone told me how to filter out an item in my data, I can't remember. Thanks!

My HyperCard Stack has a card for each bird and each location. There are some 500 bird cards and perhaps 100 locations. There are 2830 cards because everytime I ...
