I'm sure this question is easy to answer, but searching for it is a little hard given that there are a lot of "if"s and "in"s in the documentation.

I want to be able to list the first 10 observations that conform to a given 'if' statement.

I can't do

list if x=5 in 1/10

or

list in 1/10 if x=5

since that only returns the first 10 observations in the data -if- they conform.

I want the first 10 observations that -do- conform.

Is there an easy way to do this?

Sorry if this is a dumb question

Malcolm
