I have a table MyTable (Id, MyText)
I would like to select all from it and order by MyText.
From that list I would like to select rows between  @StartNum and @EndNum.
For example if @StartNum=20 and @EndNum=30 then I would select the rows between 20 and 30 from an ordered list. How is best to do this?

Use CTE
with CTE
AS
  (SELECT Id, MyText, ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY MyText) as ROWNO FROM Emp)

select * from CTE where ROWNO >= @StartNum and ROWNO <= @EndNum
