Limit in SQL - sql - sql tutorial - learn sql

  • The LIMIT clause restricts the number of results returned from a SQL statement. It is available in MySQL.
  • For example, LIMIT10 would return the first 10 rows matching the SELECT criteria.


  • The syntax for LIMIT is as follows:
[SQL Statement 1]
  • where [N] is the number of records to be returned. Please note that the ORDER BY clause is usually included in the SQL statement. Without the ORDER BY clause, the results we get would be dependent on what the database default is.


  • We use the following table for our example.

Table Store_Information

Store_Name Sales Txn_Date
Los Angeles 1500 Jan-05-1999
San Diego 250 Jan-07-1999
Los Angeles 300 Jan-08-1999
Boston 700 Jan-08-1999
  • To retrieve the two highest sales amounts in Table Store_Information, we key in,
SELECT Store_Name, Sales, Txn_Date
FROM Store_Information


Store_Name Sales Txn_Date
Los Angeles 1500 Jan-05-1999
Boston 700 Jan-08-1999
