I have this query that lists a given list of codes for a project

76011
76013
76015

I want to have this query repeat 3 times so it comes out like this

76011
76013
76015
76016
76011
76013
76015
76016

Sorry not explaining this correctly

Here is my query

select cost_element_id from DBSproj.dbo.component_cost_element
where component_id = '8933'
and project_id = 'INTL WITH TAS'

Results are this:

70573    
76013    
76023    
76033    
76053    
76063    
76093    
76313    
76333    
76353    
76373    
76393    
76473    
76493    
76613    
86013    
86033    
86933    

I want it to be

70573    
76013    
76023    
76033    
76053    
76063    
76093    
76313    
76333    
76353    
76373    
76393    
76473    
76493    
76613    
86013    
86033    
86933
70573    
76013    
76023    
76033    
76053    
76063    
76093    
76313    
76333    
76353    
76373    
76393    
76473    
76493    
76613    
86013    
86033    
86933    

etc...

If I do the union I simply retrieve only the 18

Oops, you got it!, I forget that my unions usually retrieve distinct rows, so no requirement for ALL.
