SOQL Limit

Hi Expert,

In one class i have two soql:-
public class test(){

     List<Account> acc = [select id, name from Account Limit 40000];
     List<Contact> con = [seldect id, email from Contact Limit 15000];

//above queries will return limit excede error or not

As these limits could change for each release, the easiest way to see all the governor limits is to launch your queries with the anonymous window (Ctrl+E) of the developer console.

List<Account> acc = [select id, name from Account Limit 40];
List<Contact> con = [select id, email from Contact Limit 15];

It is cummulative for each transaction for the number of query rows: 40 + 15 = 55 so 40000 + 15000 > 50000 will fail.

Adding one more point 

You can try it like this
public class test(){

     List<Account> acc = [select id, name ,(seldect id, email from Contactd Limit 15000) from Account Limit 40000];

Hi Mukesh,

As we know there are certain governor limits specified for each Apex transaction.
50,000 records at a time can be retrieved from a SOQL query.
As per your code, you are using two different SOQL queries which are not individually exceeding the
apex governor limit in any case.

So, you will not get any error in your code.
