Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

QUERY/400 doesn’t have a constraint on record numbers.
You could use CYPF to copy the first 20 records to a temporary file
Then use QUERY/400 to report the records.

Hi,

If you don’t need the record formatting from Query, you could just use CPYF to copy the first 20 records to *PRINT.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    There is another possibility. Create an empty outfile by specifying a selection on the query that returns no results. Change the outfile to SIZE(1 0 0) to restrict it to a single record and then run the query normally. Only the first record of the file will be written.

    Much easier if you can use SQL just use the FETCH FIRST 20 ROWS ONLY. If you have to use RUNQRY, then copy the first 20 records using CPYF from record 1 to record 20 to a temporary file in Qtemp or other library. Then just run your query over this temp file.
