I am using
- MSAccess
- Microsoft SQL Server  2000 - 8.00.760 (Intel X86)
- FrontPage 2003

I am trying to pull a report for a list of titles that being with a number 0-9. I have the following code working for an alphabet search:

      "WHERE BookTitle LIKE 'B%' and ACTIVE LIKE 'Yes' "

Do I have to do an OR statement for each number or is there a an inclusive code?

Disagree with using like for an exact comparison.  Recommend:

WHERE [BookTitle] Like '[0-9]%' AND [Active] = 'Yes'
