Custom "between" criteria in Access Query.

Looking to retrieve all values between records listing AA-1 through AA-96 (ie. between "AA-1" and "AA-96"). Since its not a whole number, I assume it won't retrieve the exact values I'm looking for.

i think you have some values other than 'AA-???' in the table, if you don't want those records,

do

select * from <table_name>
where CInt(replace(<your_column_name>, 'AA-', ''))  between 1 and 96
and <your_column_name> like 'AA-*'
