I'm trying to query a column in my table called invoice.  Which has data like:

123
154
14235
123-old

ect....

I only want to get the ones that have a "-old" on them.  Below is what I'm trying for but the * doesn't work the way I need it to.

select InvoiceNo
from DebtorService
where Invoiceno = *-old
