I need to cursor a table in a particular order because i am creating a new sort number that is to update the table.  Any ideas on how to do this.  The cursor is not liking the order by in the select statement for the cursor.  Here is what I have:

Declare curNum cursor

For (Select Number, subNumber From ##Table order by sortorder)

Declare @Num varchar (25)
Declare @subnum varchar (25)

Open curNum

Fetch Next from curNum Into @Num, @subnum
While (@@Fetch_Status = 0)

Begin
Then Statement
Fetch Next from curNum into @Num, @subnum

End
Close curNum
Deallocate curNum
