Hi all
I have a report which has "contratc number" as one of the fields, and it has the following data:
DC10061
DC10047
DC10056
DC10025
9914222
8923655
0891065
What i want is to see only the records that do not have the 'DC' prefix. Any help is great.

Thanks

where contract_number not like 'DC%'

Why don't you show us the full query. And what happens if you run it in sql+?
