Mimer equivalent of Oracle NVL / MySQL ISNULL

Mimer equivalent of Oracle NVL / MySQL ISNULL


Just wondering if anyone could tell me if there is an equivalent for Oracle NVL in Mimer. The NVL function takes 2 parameters and if parameter 1 is null it returns parameter 2 otherwise it returns parameter 1. The MySQL function ISNULL does a similar thing.
I have looked in the doc set but not found anything as yet so any help would be appreciated.

Use the standard function coalesce.

Thanks, that worked a treat! How about the oracle feature ROWNUM for limiting the number of returned rows. How can I achieve that in Mimer.
