Last modified: December 26, 2019

The Select Records tool returns records and ranges of records that are specified, including discontinuous ranges of records. It is very useful for troubleshooting and sampling.

Tool configuration

Ranges: Enter the records or range of records to return.

A single digit returns only the entered row.

"3" returns only row 3

A minus sign before a number returns row 1 through the entered row.

"-2" returns rows 1 and 2.

A range of numbers returns the rows in the range, including the entered rows.

"17-20" returns rows 17, 18, 19, and 20.

A number followed by a plus sign returns the entered row through the last row.

"50+" returns row 50 through the last row.

Any combination can be used at the same time by entering the numbers on a new line.
