ok i have a varchar field that i am trying to push into another table.

i have text characters; and when i see these; i would like to filter these (out)--

right now i am using this where clause
'WHERE BUDCSI NOT LIKE '' AND BUDCSI NOT LIKE '' AND BUDCSI NOT LIKE '' AND BUDCSI NOT LIKE ''

and i want a better way to do this.

in access; i would have said 'where IsNumeric(BUDCSI) = TRUE'


INSERT INTO RASB.dbo.tblBudget
                      (BUDID, Prid, CCID, BUDCBI, BUDCSI, BudCO, BUDName, BudValue, BUDLab, BudBurden, BUDMat, BUDSub, BUDVDID, Submittal, SubmitalTitle,
                      SubmitBy, SubmitCSI, ContractORpo, BudCoid, BudMatAdj, BudLabAdj, BudSubAdj, BudAdjId, BudCTD, BudCTC, AccountStatus, BudRev, BudCom,
                      budrevcom, BudOldAdj)
SELECT     BUDID, Prid, CCID, BUDCBI, BUDCSI, BudCO, BUDName, BudValue, BUDLab, BudBurden, BUDMat, BUDSub, BUDVDID, Submittal, SubmitalTitle,
                      SubmitBy, SubmitCSI, ContractORpo, BudCoid, BudMatAdj, BudLabAdj, BudSubAdj, BudAdjId, BudCTD, BudCTC, AccountStatus, BudRev, BudCom,
                      budrevcom, BudOldAdj
FROM         dbo.tblBudget

Or
Where IsNumeric(cplname) = 1

However this assumes the whole string is numeric.

Typo.  I was testing with some local data, it should have been:
Where IsNumeric(BUDCSI) = 1

Where BUDCSI NOT Like '%[a-z]%'

sorry; i meant to say that this:
Where BUDCSI Like '%[0-9]%'

doesnt' suit my needs; because i have combined text & numeric there.

i need to look for the presence of text & or other characters; and i want to do it in a flexible, maintainable way.

Is this what you want:

Where BUDCSI Like '%[^0-9]%'

This will check for any characters NOT in the range 0-9 and is basically equivalent to:

Where IsNumeric(BUDCSI) = 0
