The following information discusses how a SELECT statement with an ORDER BY clause is affected by the SET ROWCOUNT statement.
The SET ROWCOUNT statement places a limit on the number of rows that are returned to the client application. It has no other effect on processing. All of the rows will be sorted and any aggregate functions will operate on the complete results set, even if the complete results set is not returned to the client application.
