MySQL has the keyword LIMIT x,y that allow you to make an easy and flexible pagination.
LIMIT x,y :
x means start from row
y means return only some rows
In DB2/400, starting from Version 5 Release 4, is available the ROW_NUMBER() function.
Here an example :
WITH MYRECSET (MYRRN, MYROW, MYFIELD1, MYFIELD2, MYFIELD3) as (
SELECT RRN(MYLIB.MYTABLE) as MYRRN,
ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY MYFIELD1, MYFIELD2) AS MYROW,
MYFIELD1, MYFIELD2, MYFIELD3
FROM MYLIB.MYTABLE )
SELECT * FROM MYRECSET
WHERE MYROW > 20
FETCH FIRST 10 ROWS ONLY
As you can see
MySQL "LIMIT x,y" where "x" is MYROW ( ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY MyField01) AS MYROW )
MySQL "LIMIT x,y" where "y" is "FETCH FIRST 10 ROWS ONLY"
