generate numbers

hello,
I would like to generate a list of numbers.
the code bellow is working fine but I just want to know how to add a feature.. so that the first digit has a range of [2-9] if it starts with 1 or 0 then its invalid

                    For x = 1 To 9999999
                        Debug.Print(x.ToString("D7"))
                    Next

if x>=2 and x<=9
then
For x = 1 To 9999999
                        Debug.Print(x.ToString("D7"))
                    Next
Else
Error..
End If

try this

        For x As Integer = 1 To 9999999
            If x.ToString Like "[2-9]*" Then
                Debug.Print(x.ToString("D7"))
            End If

so you want to check it after the format? then you can start the loop from 200000 instead of 1

For x As Integer = 200000  To 9999999
            If x.ToString Like "[2-9]*" Then
                Debug.Print(x.ToString("D7"))
            End If
Next

or

For x As Integer = 1To 9999999
            If x.ToString("D7") Like "[2-9]*" Then
                Debug.Print(x.ToString("D7"))
            End If
Next
