I have written a query executed from VB through ADO on an Access database, that I am trying to move to Microsoft SQL Server.  The statment uses modular division in a comparison.  Access is OK with it, but SQL Server generates the following error

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Line 1: Incorrect syntax near 'MOD'.

The statement goes something like this:

WHERE ((xSys MOD 1000) = (ySys MOD 1000))

I am trying to compare the last x digits of two numbers.

Thanks In Advance
