select * from table limit (n-1),(m-n) n-1 because it is 0-based http://www.sqlite.org/lang_select.html On 10/8/07, Adam Megacz <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > Hello.

"LIMIT 4 OFFSET 100" at the end of the select. On 10/7/07, Adam Megacz <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > Hello.

### Re: [sqlite] any way to SELECT the 100th-104th row of a table?

The only way I can think of doing it without modifying the table (i.e. adding a rowid column that's updated on every delete) is to select all the rows on the table and then increment count for every step that returns a row.
