Limiting the number of records collected through ClearCollect

Hi all,

 

ClearCollect(CollectionName;DataSource) will give me a collection called CollectionName with up to 500 (or 2000) records. 

 

Question: can I limit the number of records gathered in the NewCollection to 10 (or any other number)?

 

Let me know please?

 

Regards

Charles

Yes, you can limit the number of records stored within a collection using the FIRSTN function.

 

ClearCollect(CollectionName;FirstN(DataSource,10))
