I have a DB with patients, services and costs. I want to produce a list of the top ten patients which have the highest costs for a service. Since the DB has more than a million observations I wanted to generate the list without needing to sort the original DB (because it takes some time in my laptop). Thanks.

It might be SORT . It might be RANK. Please give us more detail about what you are trying to do.
