Hi!

I'm processing a query contains LEFT OUTER JOINS from a table to 5 other. I'm receiving an error.

I put the SQL of the query in SQL Server Management Studio and it returns 2,412,348 rows and consume 02:06 min.

I would like to know if is there a way of make MS SQL Server manage the query in the way it returns 1,000 or another controlled number of lines in non-synchronous way or something like this.

If the SQL Server doesn't do the job, I would like to receive a suggestion of how to solve the problem.

I think about read the first 1,000(for example) rows, then reopen the query skipping first 1,000 and reading the 1,001 to 2,000 and so on. It is notorius that I would have performance degradation.

Would someone of you give me some explanation about this?

It can also occurs with another RDBMS. We use MS SQL Server and Oracle here.
