I have a table that has three fields.
acct_nbr
theID
datetime to the second.

I need a query that will allow me to find a pattern where sequential acct_nbr's numbers have been accessed by the same theID based on datetime to the second. Listed below is an example of the data. It does not represent the pattern I am trying to find.  While I can sort by acct_nbr,datetime, and theID I can not bring the required pattern to the forefront.  There are 20 millions records in the table.

All help is greatly appreciated.

Data looks like
acct_nbr                     datetime                                      theID
123911111      2007-12-28 23:01:54.000      206936
133333333      2007-12-28 22:19:15.000      969023
644444444      2007-12-28 23:00:28.000      999633
155555555      2007-12-29 08:10:40.000      590635

So the access has to take place during the SAME second?  Your requirement is unclear:
"sequential acct_nbr's numbers have been accessed by the same theID based on datetime to the second"


;with AccountsAccessed as
(select theid,[datetime] as tDate,acct_nbr
from SomeTable b
join
(select theid,[datetime]
from SomeTable
group by theid,[datetime]
having count(*)>1
)a
on a.theid=b.theid and b.[datetime]=c.[datetime]
)
select * from AccountsAccessed a1
join AccountsAccessed a2
on a1.theid=a2.theid
and a1.tdate=a2.tdate
and a1.acct_nbr=a2.acct_nbr-1

Sorry for the confusion. I meant "to the second "in regards to sequential order.  Does the query sample need to be modified

Try this

select a1.theid, a1.acct_nbr, a2.acct_nbr, a1.[datetime]
from YourTable a1 inner join YourTable a2
   on a1.theid = a2.theid and a1.[datetime] = a2.[datetime] and a1.acct_nbr = a2.acct_nbr+1

based on your last post this should work

select a1.theid, a1.acct_nbr, a2.acct_nbr, a1.[datetime]
from YourTable a1 inner join YourTable a2
   on a1.theid = a2.theid and a1.[datetime] = a2.[datetime]
