How to reterive the last 5 records in a table?

Hi

I have a table which contains number of rows. I want to fetch the
last 5 records from the table. I know for the first 'n' records we can
use FETCH FIRST n ROWS ONLY command. But i want to fetch last 5
records. Can any one help in this...

Advance Thanks for ur replies
Warm Regards

This won't work in any versions of DB2 Z/OS. "fullselect " in DB2 Z/OS
doesn't include ORDERBY and FETCH FIRST clauses. Although I haven't had
a need to use it so far, but this clearly shows how useful they can be.
Also missing from fullselect is VALUES clause. I sure wish, IBM irons
out these "small" discrepancies between the two platforms.

I am not sure how to do this when the RecordSource is simply the table. I know that if the record source were a...

I don't know where to begin search for this... I want to add a record, but still able to see the page, without bringing it to a new page and have to scroll back to see other records. I hope I explain myself here. Or, is there a way to add record being on the top of other records and not go to the bottom? Thanks. Perry
