Convert like statement from Access QBD to SQL

Could someone please advise the syntax used in sql for this command that was in QBD in Access?

Like '[2-3]*[!0]*'

Thanks in advance!

looks like I misread the migration products... :)
I agree with capricorn, for sql 2005, the condition looks like this:

Like '[2-3]%[!0]%'
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

I think we're close...

I'm trying to place this in the filter of a view (in the design view).
When I put this exact statement in
Like '[2-3]%[!0]%'
I get an error "Data type error in expresseion.'

The problem was the numeric field - and the like statement was perfect from both of you.
Therefore I'm awarding angellll a little more on the points.

Thank you both.
