in reply to Querying Select Number of Rows

set rowcount 11 select first_name from database where start_date <= '2001/04/14' and stop_date > '2999/12/31'

Something similar to that concept in your sql may help.... rowcount works with Sybase. MySQL, I dont know.

Update:I took the talk about his posted code out, and realized it just didnt fit in this thread. Regardless, the rowcount idea, kind of follows the suggesstion(s) above.
