You use the Count attribute in the FetchXml schema to create a query against the Microsoft Dynamics CRM database. Then, you set the Count attribute to 20,000. In this scenario, the number of search results that is returned is 5,000. Additionally, the SELECT statement in the SQL language is always SELECT TOP 5001 regardless of what is set for the Count attribute and for the Paging attribute.
