how to display employee names starting with a and then b in sql

i want to display the employee names which having names start with a and b ,it should be like list will display employees with 'a' as a first letter and then the 'b' as a first letter...

so any body tell me what is the command to display these...

Answer

To get employee names starting with A or B listed in order...

select employee_name 
from employees
where employee_name LIKE 'A%' OR employee_name LIKE 'B%'
order by employee_name

If you are using Microsoft SQL Server you could use

....
where employee_name  LIKE '[A-B]%'
order by employee_name

This is not standard SQL though.
