Is it possible to find the DMax for a group of values that begin with specific characters?

Example:  Let's say I have the following values in a table called Table1 and stored in field called Field1. I know that DMax("Field1", "Table1") will return the maximum value (N060006) for all values in Field1, but what would I need to do if I wanted to return the DMax value for only the values in Field1 that start with N05?  Is this possible?

N040012
N040013
N050001
N050002
N050009
N060004
N060005
N060006

I appreciate any suggestions that anyone may have.

Sure, the DMAX domain function accepts three arguments, the third is a criteria string.

strCriteria = "Left([Field1], 3) = " & chr$(34) & "N05" & chr$(34)

?DMAX("Field1", "Table1", strCriteria)
