SQL: how to select 5 rows of this and 5 rows of that



fixed

I would like to select 5 rows (of thousands) where field1 = 'A' and union that with 5 rows where field1 = 'B'

How can I accomplish this with sql?

Thanks!



I have tried variations of

select * from file1
where field1 = 'A'
FETCH FIRST 5 ROWS ONLY
union
select * from file1
where field1 = 'B'
FETCH FIRST 5 ROWS ONLY
