I'm calling the data through linked tables from SQL2008.
The method 'rownum' is not a SQL term.
If you try to use it in a select statement of data on SQL2008 to retrieve data from Oracle you get this error
Msg 207, Level 16, State 1, Line 3
Invalid column name 'rownum'.
Top n will work on one table
If i do this
select top n 3 from table1
I get 3 rows.
It's only when i start to join the tables and then do a top n that Oracle or the intermediare between SQL and Oracle starts to produce errors
