I have a huge database and also huge query. I would like to
add a possibility to limit a report of let's say 100 rows.
As I have tried with count() it took a half an hour till I
have had enough and had killed a process.
What to do?

Not working, I'm using InterBase SQL server!

Hmm well then I cant help you other, than suggesting using count (like you tried already), as I don't know anything about the IB SQL, sorry. Just reject my answer, and maybe state such things in your question next time.

Try
Select Top 100 from mytable
