Returning Results in Groups from a Database

Returning Results in Groups from a Database

Question:
I have a Web page that lets the user query my database and return results in groups of 50 records. I know how to do the first SQL statement to get the first 50 rows but I don’t know of an easy way in SQL to return rows 51–100. Do you have any ideas?

Answer:
In my world (Visual FoxPro) we use a business object to send a requery request to the data source. Doing things like keeping track of 50 rows at a time can be a problem, though. Try limiting the result set size by better use of parameterized queries.
