    I have gone brain dead today. What is the command to limit the output of a select statement? Example: If the select statement runs, I get 200 rows, but I only want to see the first 10 rows of data. My brain keeps thinking the command is "Select * from EMP limit to 10 rows;" but I know that is not correct.

    Thanks.

    Command for limiting selected rows is :
    Select * from emp where rownum < 10

    Enjoy
