This is Easy:


sect deptno,sal,row_number() over (partition by deptno order by '1')
from
(select deptno,sum(sal) sal
from emp
group by deptno)

BUT

my question is:

since you are grouping by deptno, so if you want to reset the rownum for each deptno, then each deptno will have rownum 1 eactly...this doesn't makes sense to me. For Example:
  1  select deptno,sal,row_number() over (partition by deptno order by '1')
  2  from
  3  (select deptno,sum(sal) sal
  4  from test.emp
  5* group by deptno)
SQL> /

    DEPTNO        SAL ROW_NUMBER()OVER(PARTITIONBYDE
========== ========== ==============================
        10       8750                              1
        20      10075                              1
        30       9480                              1


However, this may makes sense:

  1  select empno,ename,deptno,sal,row_number() over (partition by deptno order by '1')
  2* from test.emp
SQL> /

     EMPNO ENAME          DEPTNO        SAL ROW_NUMBER()OVER(PARTITIONBYDE
========== ========== ========== ========== ==============================
      7782 CLARK              10       2450                              1
      7839 KING               10       5000                              2
      7934 MILLER             10       1300                              3
      7566 JONES              20       2975                              1
      7902 FORD               20       3000                              2
      7876 ADAMS              20       1100                              3
      7788 SCOTT              20       3000                              4
      7499 ALLEN              30       1680                              1
      7900 JAMES              30        950                              2
      7844 TURNER             30       1500                              3
      7654 MARTIN             30       1250                              4
      7698 BLAKE              30       2850                              5
      7521 WARD               30       1250                              6

Would you please tell us what is reason behind getting such output (as you described) ?
