Hi

I have an app that allows the user to specify any SQL query and the number of records
to pull through. I got the following error trying to run the top 30 records  of:
Select * From Accounting

Incorrect Syntax near the keyword 'From'

Select Top 11 From (Select * From Accounting)"

Why do you have the subquery? It should suffice to do:

Select Top 11 * From Accounting

Nevertheless, you could correct your existing query as:

Select Top 11 * From (Select * From Accounting)
