How do I return only the records that are between rowID 50 and 150 with this Select Statement

I am trying to return only the 100 rows between the RowIDs of 50 and 150 from the following statement I get an error  of :

Msg 207, Level 16, State 1, Line 12
Invalid column name 'RowID'.
Msg 207, Level 16, State 1, Line 12
Invalid column name 'RowID'.
What is up with this?

SELECT
      ROW_NUMBER() over(order by [DBName],[D_ROW_ID] desc) RowID
      ,[DBName]
      ,[D_ROW_ID]
      ,[ASSETINDEX]
      ,[TRANSDATESTAMP]
      ,[TRANSTIMESTAMP]
      ,[FISCALYRADDED]
      ,[FAYEAR]
      ,[FAPERIOD]
  FROM [CUSTOM].[dbo].[test_TRANS]
  where RowID < 150 and RowID > 50
GO

Is your RowID column called D_ROW_ID ?

If so try...

WHERE ((D_ROW_ID < 150) AND (D_ROW_ID > 50))

Hi,
Are you missing "as"

ROW_NUMBER() over(order by [DBName],[D_ROW_ID] desc) as RowID
mnachuCommented:
One solution is to use CTE and get all rows into the CTE with the RowID as u have done.

After that use the Where clause and filter from the CTE.

You cannot use the derived column in the same Where It should rather be
SELECT * FROM
(
SELECT
      ROW_NUMBER() over(order by [DBName],[D_ROW_ID] desc) RowID
      ,[DBName]
      ,[D_ROW_ID]
      ,[ASSETINDEX]
      ,[TRANSDATESTAMP]
      ,[TRANSTIMESTAMP]
      ,[FISCALYRADDED]
      ,[FAYEAR]
      ,[FAPERIOD]
  FROM [CUSTOM].[dbo].[test_TRANS]
  )A
where RowID < 150 and RowID > 50
GO

THis worked flawlessly for what i was trying to accomplish

Hi,

Just wondering. Would this work too. It's a single select so it could be faster! (if your selecting a lot of data). Two selects seems a little much for what you are trying to accomplish.

     SELECT
      ROW_NUMBER() over(order by [DBName],[D_ROW_ID] desc) RowID
      ,[DBName]
      ,[D_ROW_ID]
      ,[ASSETINDEX]
      ,[TRANSDATESTAMP]
      ,[TRANSTIMESTAMP]
      ,[FISCALYRADDED]
      ,[FAYEAR]
      ,[FAPERIOD]
  FROM [CUSTOM].[dbo].[test_TRANS]
where ROW_NUMBER() over(order by [DBName],[D_ROW_ID] desc) < 150 and ROW_NUMBER() over(order by [DBName],[D_ROW_ID] desc) > 50

Or...
Declare @rowID int
     SELECT
      @rowID  = ROW_NUMBER() over(order by [DBName],[D_ROW_ID] desc) RowID
      ,[DBName]
      ,[D_ROW_ID]
      ,[ASSETINDEX]
      ,[TRANSDATESTAMP]
      ,[TRANSTIMESTAMP]
      ,[FISCALYRADDED]
      ,[FAYEAR]
      ,[FAPERIOD]
  FROM [CUSTOM].[dbo].[test_TRANS]
where @rowID  < 150 and @rowID  > 50

Just an after thought....haven't tried it.

Darren, the 1st SQL would sure work.. bu the 2nd SQL might end up giving an error as you cannot assign values with data retrieval oparations
