Help with simple RegEx on grep


I am trying to grep my log files for ORA errors, except ORA-00001.
I have tried:
grep 'ORA*!(-00001)' *.log
but it is not working.

Any help will be much appreciated.
Thank you.

@ygemici. That will not work ([^00001] is equivalent to [^01]):
$ echo ORA-00011 | sed -n '/ORA-[0-9][0-9]*[^00001]/p'

Try this:
sed '/ORA-00001/d;/ORA/!d' infile

thanks friend Smilie i have written this urgently i have forgotten other conditions..
however if we only except `ORA-00001` we can use this
sed -n '/ORA-/{;/00001/!p;}' infile
