Im working with DB2 and I need to be able to return a limited set of results.
Ive figured out how to return the "TOP n" results with
But I cannot figure out how to get rows from X to Y.
mySQL equivalent is LIMIT X, Y

I found the solution:

 SELECT ROW_NUMBER() OVER() AS rownum, myLargeTable.*
 FROM myLargeTable
) AS tmp
WHERE rownum > 200000 AND rownum <= 200005;
