Thanks Maarten and Martin. To clarify my opaque need to Martin what I
need is that the table produced only shows the first ten values (the
highest 10 values or any other small figure) to avoid having really
long tables of results and further editing (erasing anything below the
10th greatest value). It is more clear now?
