Hi, I have a simple question regarding the FETCH FIRST feature. Was this feature introduced in version 10.1?

I've read through the documentation and it seems like that's case. So I basically wonder, how do I limit the result set to select the first row in 10.0? I can't use anything like select TOP/LIMIT/ROWNUM in 10.0 from what i've seen.



As you have noticed, FETCH FIRST was introduced in v10.1. Previous versions had no similar functionality.

If you just want to fetch the first single row it can usually be done using a condition which includes a sub-query with MAX (or MIN.) If you want the first lets say 10 rows it can be a bit trickier. If you have a specific problem, you can post it here and (hopefully) get some input.
