Question Searching on Ratings Field

I need a little help. I bit the bullet and decided to use Calibre to create a database in order to use it to transfer books to my Kindle. I now have all my books in and have setup the ratings for those books which I have read. Now I am trying to figure out how to do a search based on those ratings so that I can eliminate the books that are already read so that I can use the other sort columns in order to decide which books to put on my kindle. But I am having difficulty getting the advanced search to search for books that have not been rated. I've seen different posts which suggest to just sort on the ratings column but this is not an ideal solution because I wish to use other columns in order to sort in order to select the books. Is it possible to create a search for books which have not been rated, the only successful searches I've been able to get is to use a rating= criteria?

TIA

Never mind, I was able to get some assistance on this on the Amazon forums.
