I have a table with one column storing the condition of a query, like "*" etc.
* means all countries
Now, apart from "*", there is a need to have a condition "Not US"

So, can we join table has same effect as "[Country] is not US" ?
What can I do ?

MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Maybe best to have more information

though the basic idea is : [Country] <> 'US'
or if you need to add some other exceptions, you might prefer [Country] NOT IN ('US', 'AnotherOne', 'OrTwo')

And if there can be Null entries in the field, be careful to correctly handle them
