RE: SQL select records with numeric strings



fixed

Hi Luis
My interpretation of the request from Joel is that the string can contain other data beside the bank account number of 9 digits
For example
JOE SCHMOE, 123 MAIN ST., ANYWHERE, NY 10001, 765444128
Where 765444128 is the 9 digit bank account number
Hopefully, Joel will expand on his request

Joel,

Try this:

SELECT * FROM TEXTFILE WHERE TRANSLATE(TEXT, ' ',
'1234567890') = ' '

If the result is ' ', the field contains only numbers.
