Find books lacking a specific format

I would like to find all of the books in my library lacking a specific (epub) format so that I can convert them. Is it possible to make search look for the lack of a format?

I tried using regular expressions with the normal negation characters, but that didn't work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Calibre is intelligent enough that if you select all your books and then opt to bulk convert it will warn you about all the existing in whatever format you're converting to. You can then choose to not reconvert these and it will convert the rest
