Adding a skip last N rows on sample tool

I use the skip 1st N rows in almost all my workflows and find that I have unwanted rows at the bottom of my data a lot and will end up having to sort the data before being able to skip the 1st N rows. It would be a lot easier to just skip the last N rows instead.

hi @alexlat11 thanks for your feedback. I'm not sure why this option wasn't included; perhaps it is because that same thing can be accomplished with the Select Records tool (which admittedly does not include the dynamic "%" option). We'll be sure to pass along your idea once the necessary criteria are met.

This is a request I was coming to make myself.  This would be handy when dynamically pulling data from SAP via the DVW connector.  Tables like MB51 or **bleep**LL03H pull in stuff at the bottom where adding the removal in the sample tool would be helpful (eg remove bottom 3 records always).  I could see a dynamic option also being handy for others, less so for SAP pulls.

This would remove the need to reverse the row order, skip 1st N and reverse row order again in order to achieve this, which is not ideal, especially with large datasets.
