The LIMIT clause may be used to limit the records returned by the SELECT statement. You specify the start row (start from zero), and the number of records returned. The following example lists the first 10 records from the search table.

SELECT * FROM search LIMIT 0, 10;

The following example would retrieve the next ten records from the table.
SELECT * FROM search LIMIT 10, 10;

You can also store the start and end rows in variables to be able to produce the paging functions you see everywhere. You pass these variables in the url with strings for next, previous paging

Hi abhishek2002,

If you are using MySQL you can write

SELECT * FROM myTable LIMIT 0,10

where 0 is startrow and 10 is number of records you want to return
