Brian Swan has a quick new post today about using the pagination feature in the latest version of the SQL Server driver for PHP.

So, with the final release of the 2.0 version of the driver coming soon, I thought it was high time I posted something about using the functionality that was added in the v1.1 driver (better late then never!). While I'm at it, I'll include code that shows how to do paging with the PDO driver. (Complete scripts attached to this post.)

He gives a basic example of paginated data that lets you move back and forth with simple text links on the page. The key is in the row_number function that lets you specify the block of records to return. Code is included for this and a few other modifications including numeric links to jump to certain pages in the results. All scripts are included as a download.
