need a string function for sql query

(OP)
I have a query that works to list 2 fields in a table side by side.
One field lists subjects of messages. Some of those messages start with the first 3 letters 'Re:' and I want to filter those out. I need a string function, to add to the query, that would say:


and the first 3 letters of field 'subject' does not equal "Re:"  

RE: need a string function for sql query

AND SUBSTRING(field FROM 1 FOR 3) <> 'Re:'
