I would like to get the records like (from 1st record to 20th record or 20-30) from access database. I wonder there is no support for rowid and rownum like oracle. Is there any way to retrieve the records like above?

Thanks in Advance.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

As far as I know, Access doesn't support any easy way of doing paging. You could search for "access" and "paging" to confirm. (I haven't used Access, just read about it.)

I agree. Here's the link:
