All -  I have just inherited an access database.  I haven't the
foggiest clue on how to use it.  I am trying to build a select query to
grab a certain number of emails out of database and export them into
excel.  As we know, there is a limit of just over 65k entries in excel.
I am trying to select just under that number so it can be exported.
Here is what I have done so far.

created query - Like "a*" however, it is returning over 65k entries and
unexportable.  How can I create a query that will select something like
-  aa - ak to decrease the total number of emails?

Thanks in advance for your help!
