in reply to SQL Paging with Perl

You could try using SQL::Abstract::Limit. It has a way to generate queries that will only retrieve the page of results you're looking for. MSSQL would require the use of the Top dialect: (see the docs)

use SQL::Abstract::Limit; my $sql = SQL::Abstract::Limit->new( limit_dialect => 'Top' ); # generate SQL: my ( $stmt, @bind ) = $sql->select( $table, \@fields, \%where, \@order +, $limit, $offset ); # Then, use these in your DBI statements my $sth = $dbh->prepare( $stmt ); $sth->execute( @bind );
