When I try to run this simple statement (below) I get an error -

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 4
Incorrect syntax near ')'.

If I run the second select by iytself it works -  Any idea why this would occur -
if i can not use row number to number the items in each set within this larger set how can I accomplish this?  
select id , evtdate, userGuid, Interval, FieldName, value, 
point into #temp2 from (Select id , evtdate, userGuid, Interval, FieldName, value, 
ROW_NUMBER() OVER(Partition By ID  Order By FieldName) from #temp)

btw..whenever you do a subquery like that, you have to give it an alias...in the above, i just put an a afterwards....other than that, looks good.

Hello DylanJones1,

You could try this:

select id , evtdate, userGuid, Interval, FieldName, value, IDENTITY(int, 1, 1) AS point
into #temp2
from #temp
order by ID, FieldName

Regards,

Patrick

Thanks,  I like slow finders suggestion also  just to avoid the row numbering - did we lose the ability to split points?
