Now, we can see some of the commands withdrawing the example we had from our last tutorial,


It is used when we deal with batches of records.

syntax: SKIP [number of records to be skipped]

MATCH (e:emp) RETURN e SKIP 10;

It skips the first 10 records and returns the rest.


It is used to limit the number of records.

syntax: LIMIT [maximum number of records to be retrieved]

MATCH (e:emp) RETURN e LIMIT 10;

It returns only the first 10 records present.

SKIP and LIMIT together

MATCH (e:emp) RETURN e SKIP 10 LIMIT 10;

It skips the first 10 records and lists the next 10.


It denotes the sorting option [ASC/DESC]. We can specify how the records have to be sorted.

syntax: ORDER BY [field name] [ASC/DESC]

If we want to retrieve records with sorting names of employees ascending order(default).


For descending,

MATCH (e:emp) RETURN e ORDER BY e.designation DESC;
