t-sql LIMIT

ok this one no longer works in t-sql

            SELECT  * FROM products WHERE catID = '#FORM.catId#'
            LIMIT #url.page*10-10#, 20;

this is what it should say in english:

select all from the proudcts table where the catid = my form and limit the results by  #url.page*10-10#, 20;

i have tried this but does not work

SELECT top #url.page*10-10#, 20; * FROM products WHERE catID = '#FORM.catId#'

Paging look good, but this one does work, just want to tget it working in t-sql right as it worked fine when i was on mysql as coldfusion does all the work, i just need to get the query to say the same thing in t-sql as it did before>

this worked before like this

SELECT * FROM products WHERE catID = '#FORM.catId#' LIMIT #url.page*10-10#, 20

url.page changes cf side so that each time i get the next set of results 20 at a time. now this worked like until we moved to MS SQL and all i think is it needs the correct syntax for T-SQL.

I suggest you implement paging at ColdFusion level as it will limit round trips and improve performance caching...There should be an option such as startrow= endrow= if I remember right...
