I have a list of accountnumbers from the query where I need to exclude accountnumbers which start with 7. Can I use regexp or is there any easier way to use it in DB2.

Please suggest !

I think DB2 uses the same basic syntax as Oracle:
select accountnumbers from some_table where accountnumbers not like '7%'

Hi D27,

If the account number is stored as a string, the easiest is to filter on it.

SELECT * FROM mytable WHERE left (account_no, 1) <> '7';

If the account number is numeric, there's a bit more work to do.  But if the account number is a consistent length, it gets easy, too.
