Sequence Number Records In Query or Table

I have a table and or query with a list of bill #'s these  and transaction dates
1. The bill # will duplicate with every transdate that is different
2. Every Tranaction date is not unique there are several other bill #'s with the same transaction date.
I need to have either VB or sql that will place a numbered sequence in the query or table to count the number of time the Bill # appears and place it in the table or query in the same row with the bill# it is counting. I have looked at several fuctions to complete this but have found nothing that complete what I am asking for, Dcount kind of worked but it did not count the records grouped but instead counted the grouped records. If anyone has any ideas please let me know, basically I need to do a running sum on a query or table to show the count sequence of grouped records.


This is what it looks like now:

K8018JD      3/10/2008

K8018JD      3/24/2008

K8018JD      4/01/2008

K8018JD      6/10/2008

K8018JD      9/10/2008

K8018JD      11/01/2008

K80705G      3/10/2008

K80705G      3/24/2008

K80705G      4/01/2008

K80705G      6/10/2008
 

This is what I need it to look like:

1  K8018JD      3/10/2008 

2  K8018JD      3/24/2008

3  K8018JD      4/01/2008

4  K8018JD      6/10/2008

5  K8018JD      9/10/2008

6  K8018JD      11/01/2008

1  K80705G      3/10/2008

2  K80705G      3/24/2008

3  K80705G      4/01/2008

4  K80705G      6/10/2008

nelsonje,

Go to the SQL view and paste it there, and be sure to update to match your actual table and column names.

I can not get this SQL to work at all, I dont know what I am doing wrong,
Here is the SQL you gave me:
SELECT (select count(*) from A as B where billno=A.billno and [date]<=A.[date]) AS sequence, A.billno, A.date
FROM A
ORDER BY A.billno, A.date;

Here is what my Current QUERY SQL looks like:
SELECT [Weekly Comments].BILL, [Weekly Comments].[TRANS DATE]
FROM [Weekly Comments];

What am I doing wrong ???
