Since the latest MS SQL versions there is the TOP clause that lets you limit the number of result rows.

I am working with MS SQL and would like the functionality that MySQL's limit function provides. I understand that MS SQL has no such command or equivalent. Has someone found a way to use standard (or MS SQL specific) SQL to achieve the same goal? I have seen bits and pieces of code and ideas here and there, but nothing seems to work. Any advice would be appreciated.
You may want to check Metabase solution that is based on server side cursors. Instead of executing a query directly it just creates a cursor with a given query and instructs the server to only start sending rows after the first that may be found, if you want to skip any rows of course:
