Anyone know of a way to get Teradata to just return just the first X number of rows? I know queryman will ask you after retrieving 2000 rows if you want to continue and get the rest but I'm looking for a way to specify the number of rows I want in the SQL. In MS SQL Server for example one types,
Select top 10 * from myTable
to retrieve the first 10 rows from myTable.
Just to clarify my question, I know I can use the sample clause to return a random sample of X rows. What I really want is the first X in a sorted list. So my earlier sample query should have really been:
Select top 10 * From MyTable Order by MyTable.Col1
Using the Sample together with Order By clause just seems to give a random sampling of records....
