    Specific record without using WHERE clause ?
    You should know what is the use of the clause first. That is used to specify the condition.

    in agreement with moderator. only with the help of where clause we can restrict the rows how come without using it. still if somehow u get a way out of it do let me know .

    You can get first record without where clause in SQL Server and MYSQL but not in oracle



    SQL Server : SELECT TOP 1 column FROM table

    Oracle : SELECT column FROM table where ROWNUM = 1

    mysql : SELECT column FROM table LIMIT 1
