How to return a range of rows in sql server

Hello,

John Bell posted a reply on 2003-11-02 04:11:02 PST, that gave me an
idea how to achieve paging in sql server without row number
functionality. Thank you John. The following works for me, not very
eficient though:

SELECT * FROM
( SELECT top 5 * FROM
( SELECT top 10 * FROM
( SELECT top 10 *
FROM dft_document
ORDER BY documentkey ASC
) a
ORDER BY documentkey DESC
) b
) d
ORDER BY documentKey ASC

The innermost SELECT gives 10 rows out of which last 5 needed.

You can simplify this to

SELECT *
FROM (SELECT TOP 5 *
FROM (SELECT TOP 10 *
FROM dft_document
ORDER BY documentkey ASC) AS T10
ORDER BY documentkey DESC) AS T5
ORDER BY documentkey ASC
