# Paging

Most of the queries can be paged using the page or range method.

const result = await Person.query()
  .where('age', '>', 20)
  .page(5, 100);

console.log(result.results.length); // --> 100
console.log(result.total); // --> 3341

There are some cases where page and range don't work.

  1. In modifyGraph or modifiers:
// This doesn't work because the query `qb` fetches the
// `children` for all parents at once. Paging that query
//  will have not fetch 10 results for all parents, but
// instead 10 results in total.
const result = await Person.query()
  .modifyGraph('children', qb => qb.page(0, 10));
  1. When withGraphJoined is used:
// This doesn't work because of the way SQL joins work.
// Databases return the nested relations as a flattened
// list of records. Paging the query will page the
// flattened results which has alot more rows than
// the root query.
const result = await Person.query()
  .page(0, 10);
