How to query for field values that begin with letters and end with numbers

I have to filter out records with field values like "TX17391" from a list of values that also include ones like "567890".  All of these values have their letters at the start of the field.  What combination of wildcards should I use in the criteria?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you want just records that start with a letter, you cant use Like "[a-Z]*" in the criteria

Thanks for that! I must have tried every other combinations with quotation marks. I knew it had to be simple, but I was too simple to figure it out.

From the title, Try:

WHERE (fld Like "[a-Z]*) AND (fld Like "*[0-9]")
