Good Morninging experts,

I am writing a query but I have to filter on a specific field that contains exact values as well as ranges.  The field is a varchar but the values look like numbers.

for example I need to filter on field called proc_code with the following values.
17.31 thru 17.36,
45.92 -45.95,

Any assitance would be greatly appreciated.

Is that sample 10 rows from proc_code or one row?

What is your search criteria?

Can you provide some sample results?

At face value,
... WHERE proc_code IN ("17.39","45.03",(fill here)"46.75")
OR REGEXP_LIKE (TO_NUMBER(proc_code), ^(17.3[1-6])$))
OR REGEXP_LIKE (TO_NUMBER(proc_code), ^(45.[7-8]1)$))
OR REGEXP_LIKE (TO_NUMBER(proc_code), ^(45.9[2-5])$))
