Hi maidinhtai,
What database ?
You will appreciate that this type of selection will not produce the same answer every time you run it.

Hi Peter57r,
It's a MS  SQL server database. Everytime I run this select statement, it will return the same result.

SELECT TOP 1 *  With Ties
From urTable E
LEFT OUTER JOIN
(SELECT TOP 28 * WITH Ties FROM YourTable )T
ON E.primaryKey = T.PrimaryKey
WHERE T.PrimaryKey IS NULL

aneeshattingal,
      What is 'With ties' used for? Why do I have to put it into the select statement
nguyenvinhtuCommented:
SELECT * FROM TBEXAMPLE A
WHERE (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM TBEXAMPLE B WHERE B.COL <= A.COL) = 29

-- Above code always return line 29 of TBEXAMPLE however many column there are in TBEXAMPLE
-- COL is a column name of TBEXAMPLE, you can choose any
