Something like:

SELECT * FROM yourTable
WHERE [Last Name] >= Forms!yourForm.txt_StartLetter
ORDER BY [Last Name] ASC

I just tried to run the query first without any forms, it's pull from tables.  no quite sure if I can use "Forms!yourForm"  what is the txt_startletter?

That SQL assumes you have a form open, and have a textbox named "txt_StartLetter".  Then you would either use the AfterUpdate event associated with that textbox, or a button, to open your query.

I'm trying to create a report, I need to have a query first and I added >= "L" in the criteria of the query, it pull all the letter from L to Z, what about if I just want to pull from L to P?

From L to P would look like:

WHERE [LastName] >= "L" AND [LastName] < "Q"
