Hi david_88,

Something like
SELECT * FROM Table1 WHERE ((Table1.ID) Between 20 And 30);

Good Luck!

In MySQL you can use the LIMIT function but in MSACCESS you have to use a sub query to create an offset.

select top X * from myTable where id not in (select top Y * from myTable)

X would be replaced by the amount of records you wanted to return.
Y would be replaced by the position within the data set at which you wanted to start.
id would be your unique identifier within the table.

For example:
select top 10 * from myTable where id not in (select top 19 * from myTable)

That would return records 20-30 in a recordset.

Hi,

this is example of SQL paging. You can simply modify it as you need:

top_onPage = "TOP " + Convert.ToString((onPage * page > totalCount) ? (totalCount % onPage) : (onPage));
top_page = "TOP " + Convert.ToString(onPage * page);

SELECT * FROM (
      SELECT TOP " + top_onPage + " id  FROM (
            SELECT DISTINCT " + top_page + " T.id
                  FROM dbo.tblTest T
            )      as A ORDER BY X ASC
)      as B ORDER BY X DESC
