How can I query all data where a field where all values (first letter) are between to alpha characters.  Say I want to query where the last name is between "A" and "H".

Here is the query I need to filter:

sql="SELECT p.LastName FROM Participant p INNER JOIN PartRace rc ON rc.ParticipantID = p.ParticipantID WHERE rc.RaceID = " & lWhichRace

Thanks!

Assuming the field upon which you want to perform the A - H check is lastname, use...

select lastname from participant p, partrace rc where p.articipantid=rc.raceid and LEFT(lastname,1) = [A-H]
