Is there a way to access a RowNumber in a SQL query? Something like this:
SELECT T1.c1, T2.c2 FROM T1, (SELECT c2 FROM (SELECT c2, ROWNUMBER() OVER(ORDER BY c3) AS rn FROM T2) AS T2 WHERE rn <= 10) AS T2;
We can't get this to work. We are running V5R2 DB2 level 6 with PTF's from Feb. 25, 2003.
The RowNumber function is not yet supported by DB2 UDB for iSeries. About the closest function to this on the iSeries would be the RRN() scalar function. Another alternative is writing your own user-defined function.
