How Do I include the current row in a mysql select statement

Hi Experts--

The question title says it all. basically i have a list of scores, i want to select them in order and add a rank column to the result. something like this:

SELECT score, CURRENT_ROW as 'rank'
FROM tbl_scores
ORDER BY score

i don't think CURRENT_ROW is actually a variable in MySQL. I need to know what to use in it's place

-thanks

jacob

Try this friend. Or you can write something similar to this in your MySQL

SELECT score, (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM tbl_scores B WHERE B.score <= A.score) as 'rank'
FROM tbl_scores A
ORDER BY score

SET @rank=0;
SELECT score, (@rank:=@rank+1) as 'rank'
FROM tbl_scores
ORDER BY score;
