How do I do top 1 in Oracle?

How do I do the following?

select top 1 Fname from MyTbl


In Oracle 11g?

Answer

If you want just a first selected row, you can:

select fname from MyTbl where rownum = 1

You can also use analytic functions to order and take the top x:

select max(fname) over (rank() order by some_factor) from MyTbl
