Hello every body :D.

I need to create a query like this...:

Select MyDate, i=i +1 as [Counter] from Table

and the result like this

MyDate          Counter
12/15/2008         1
12/16/2008         2
12/17/2008         3
12/18/2008         4

If the solution works in MsAccess Query much better :)

SELECT t1.MyDate,
    (SELECT COUNT(t2.MyDate) FROM SomeTable t2 WHERE t2.MyDate <= t1.MyDate) AS Counter
FROM SomeTable t1
ORDER BY t1.MyDate

Should work in Access and SQL Server...
