If the Atlas.Pdo Connection is to a Microsoft SQL Server ('sqlsrv') instance,
the LIMIT-related methods on the query object will generate sqlsrv-specific
LIMIT ... OFFSET:
If only a
LIMIT is present, it will be translated as a
OFFSET are present, it will be translated as an
OFFSET ... ROWS FETCH NEXT ... ROWS ONLY clause. In this case there must
ORDER BY clause, as the offset clause is a sub-clause of
Table and column identifiers will not be quoted automatically. If you need quotes around unusual or reserved identifiers, you will need to add them yourself.
One frequently-requested feature for this package is support for "automatic table prefixes" on all queries. This feature sounds great in theory, but in practice it is (1) difficult to implement well, and (2) even when implemented it turns out to be not as great as it seems in theory. This assessment is the result of the hard trials of experience. For those of you who want modifiable table prefixes, we suggest using constants with your table names prefixed as desired; as the prefixes change, you can then change your constants.
