Hi, i need a bit of help with a problem i&#039;ve got, has anyone got any ideas?<BR><BR>I&#039;m searching a database by a user submitted variable, checking the first character and pulling out the results. the problem is i want to differentiate N33 from NW33, NS33, NT33 etc. I think the most eficient way is to check the second character and see if its a number or a letter. Does anyone have any ideas how i could do this?<BR><BR>Cheers
