Subject:find records with only numbers
View as plain text  
I hope someone can give me a suggestion on this.
 
I'd like to find records in a table where a specific field only contains a number. 
 
For example,
Select Field1 as f
from table1 as t
where lcase(t.f) not like in
('a','b','c','d','e','f','g','h','i','j','k','l','m','n','o','p','q','r','s','t','u','v','w','x','y','z')
 
This obviously doesn't work or I wouldn't be asking the question. In this example field1
is a varchar(25) field and it is normally appropriate for it to contain data that has
numeric characters and alpha characters. Examples of valid data in this field are
'456987','142154','200145C1','954xxx','H 1231','My Test', ......etc. In my query above
I'm trying to find the records where there is only a six digit numeric value and no
others.
 
Thanks for any advice
