I think you need to use Select Layer By Location tool twice to get the opposite/switched selection:
First, use the tool to make a NEW_SELECTION by an expression.
Second, use the tool to SWITCH_SELECTION, without any expression.

If you have a whole bunch of points that reside in and outside of for example a polygon feature class. This is how I would go about it.
Try selecting all (points) and then using the Select by Layer By Location remove all (points) that are completely within the selecting features.(polygons) etc..

Hey, thanks for the help! I discovered that you have to use the 'Select Layer by Location tool' to select the records and then use the 'Select by Attributes' immediately after that and choose 'Switch Selection'
