VFP 9 Select Top 10

Hi all.

It's been quite a while since I did any work in FP.

I have a table with "productid" and "prodcount". They are both numeric. Prodcount contains inventory counts.

What I need is to select the ten product ids with the largest counts.

The table is not indexed on the prodcount field and I cannot change that.

Besides, you can always index a table temporary, just use the INDEX command to create an IDX or a tag of a CDX and specify the destination file, this will not change the table and so won't hurt any system. Besides it would be a seldom side effect for a table to stop working with an additional index tag.

Bye, Olaf.

Thank you. Simple, direct and it worked.
