Limiting the amount of records or pages that gets generated by a report

Hey guys,I'm using CR 8.5.3I have a quick question that hopefully one of your can help me out with. I have a report that works perfectly and uses a couple different parameters for sorting etc.. I'm using an SQL database and for a particular report, after inputting the correct parameter values the report would generate for example 12,000 records on 2000 pages. What I'm trying to do is create a new parameter that would limit either the amount of pages that gets generated or the amount of records. I think I'd rather limit the amount of records to start off with and I would like it to be from a list of predefined amounts. I.E. "ALL", "First 10", "First 50". Essentially I'm trying to create a report that gives me a subset or sample of the main report so that it could get printed to pdf and sent to customer for review. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Regards,Jose
