    Default How to sort data and load only first 5 max?

    Hi all,

    I am loading data from a XML file to Database. In that I want to load only first five ranked data into a table and rest I need to reject.
    In my situation, I have a column called points. I am using Sort row to order the rows. From here I want to take only the top five data or first five maximum points to load.
    How to achieve it? Please help.

    Add an "add sequence" after your sort and then a filter outputting only stuff where sequence number < 6... It wastes a bit of resources but it does work.
