"5550100" through "5550199"

                For x As Integer = 2000000 To 9999999
                    If x.ToString Like "[2-9]*" And Not (x.ToString("D7") Like "[1-9]11*") Then
                        objWriter.WriteLine(x.ToString("D7"))

For x As Integer = 2000000 To 9999999
if x < 550100 or x > 550199 then
                    If x.ToString Like "[2-9]*" And Not (x.ToString("D7") Like "[1-9]11*") Then
                        objWriter.WriteLine(x.ToString("D7"))
                    End If
end if
                Next

I've thought of something simpler than my first comment:

For x As Integer = 2000000 To 9999999
if x = 550100 then x = 550200
                    If x.ToString Like "[2-9]*" And Not (x.ToString("D7") Like "[1-9]11*") Then
                        objWriter.WriteLine(x.ToString("D7"))
                    End If
                Next
