In Oracle you can select row with clause <where rownumber = 2334>. How I can do the same in MS SQL? Do you know system veriables or function that return referenced ROW number?

There is no ROWID functino in MSSQL, however you can try using IDENTITY column property to emulate such behavior.

This SQL will simulate returning row numbers

select (select count(*)
        from table_x t2
        where t2.pk_id <= t1.pk_id) row_number, t1.*
from table_x t1

For the pk_id column , use the primary key column of the table (you can modify to use more than one if necessary)
