1. Create a query with a format of static or change an existing query from dynamic to static
    Note: Dynamic queries will not allow a sampling to be applied.  It must be a static query. 
  2. Select Tools, Query Options from the menu bar of the query.
  3. On the Record Processing tab, mark the Apply output limits checkbox. 
  4. Select Random sampling.
  5. Enter the number of records to include.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Save the query .
Note: When you save the query, it calculates the appropriate number specified in the random sampling option. However, the results of the query still show all records that meet the criteria, not just the sample. To view the random sample, in the Export module, open the query of selected records, designate the output, and click Export now.
