Select all records where a string begins with a none alphabetic value


I like to select all records from a MS Access over ODBC where a field value starts with a none alphabetic value.
e.g. should be selected:
0123 Test

should not be selected:
I start with an I
I do so, too
None begining special char

What is the right way doing for?

Thanks and Merry Christmas.
