No, the data in the database is not ordered.

You would have to know the range of the items you want, e.g.:

SELECT * FROM kentekenlogtest WHERE kenteken >= $firstOneYouWant and
kenteken <= $lastOneYouWant

Or if you know how many you want you could do:

SELECT * FROM kentekenlogtest WHERE kenteken >= $firstOneYouWant limit
