TOP operator question

I know this is a beginner question, but I am a beginner.
I am running SYBASE 12 on Solaris 8, and there doesn't seem to be a TOP operator. I run the query below, and get the error on the bottom

1> select TOP 1 lease
2> from tmp_mults
3> go
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1:
Server 'smc', Line 1:
Incorrect syntax near '1'.

My question is, if there is no TOP operator within SYBASE (on Solaris), is there a way to replicate?

Thanks in advance to whoever helps this newbie.

Yes, you can use the



use "set rowcount 0" to go back to all rows.

TOP itself is supported starting with the 12.5.3 release (CR340399).
