I have a recursive table that I use to populate a treeview control.

What I need is a routine that from any given tree node, will give me the ID of the first parent node in the tree. ie  I want the top node that has the parent ID = null, (as its the top)

The selected tree node can be anywhere down the tree hierarchy.
