IN 15.0 I think you can use

isnumeric(substring(anyfield1,5,4))=1

check if this works

SELECT *
FROM    ANYTABLE1

If you want characters 5 to 8 that ARE numeric, that should be

SELECT *
FROM    ANYTABLE1
WHERE  SUBSTRING(ANYFIELD1,5,4)  LIKE '[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]'

I think they both are same
one is saying not to select if it has atleast one non interger data and other one i saying to select data if all 4 charaters are digits.

I awarded the most points for the one I used.  I decided that the positive logic as opposed to negative was better for what I am doing but either would be acceptable.  Thank you very much for the assistance
