Hi


I have a VB.net Excel Add-in where I would like the user to look at data in SQL tables.
The tables are a few million records each so pulling all the data through is not an option.
I want the user to be able to look at around 10000 records at a time.
What is the best way to do this? What SQL syntax would I use?

If you are using Microsoft SQL Server 2012 or 2014, then I would use the OFFSET FETCH command, i.e.

Select *
From MyTable
ORDER BY MyFields
OFFSET 0 ROWS FETCH NEXT 10000 ROWS ONLY

Open in new window


Replacing the "0 ROWS" with the relevant row number you are. Please note that the ORDER BY line is compulsory when you are using OFFSET...FETCH.
