Help with SQL statment that only includes records without a # at the start of the string.

I have a table (GL_Account) with two columns that I want to retreive Account & AccountDesc.  Both are type Char.  I want to select only the rows that the Account does not end in 0 and the AccountDesc does not start with #.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How about

select * from GL_Account where RIGHT(account,1) <> '0' and LEFT(AccountDesc,1) <> '#'
