Subject:SQL Row Counting in MySQL
View as plain text  
Hi All,

Is there a simple way in MySQL to only select the first x rows that meet
a specified criteria.

For example in Oracle the following would work:

Select * from Blah where stuff="true" and rownum <= 10
(where rownum is not a specific column, just a count of how many rows
have been returned)

But MySQL doesn't like this.

Anyone know the correct way to approach this??

Cheers

Tom
