Access Query to return only numeric values

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I realize this is a bit of a strange request but....

I have a table that has a text field that contains values that are either text or numbers

For example

ID  Description
1      2
2      Shop
3      Manager
4      5

I need to a query that would retrieve only rows that have a description value field that contains a number.

In the example above,

ID  Description
1      2
4      5
