Table name - Txnenrollment
Fields - enrollmentdate,villagecode,familyid,maincardserialno,enrolled and personalized
Table name - Villagemaster
Created with this manner
select * from txnenrollment where enrolled=1
order by enrollmentdate,villagecode,maincardserialno desc
If enrolled=1 and personalized=1 then maincardserialno is not blank
if enrolled=1 and personalized=0 then maincardserialno is blank
Suppose for enrollmentdate - d1, villagdecode - v2, there are 4 records
out of which record 1 and 2 have conditions as enrolled=1 and personalized=1 that means maincardserialno is filled.
And 3 and 4 record satisfy the conditon of enrolled=1 and personalized=0.
I want to fill that record the maincardserialno with the maincardserialno of record2 +17 by checking that new maincardserialno generated record 3 is unique in whole table.
if  not then add 1 more 17 to maincardserialno and update record3.

This way the question is how to pick the last record.

Is this a variation on your previous question:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_26465942.html

Or did you truly not find an answer?

Reading this and your other question regarding making the serial no unique, I am suspecting that you should use the first method presented by matthewspatrick which is to have a derived table with the MAX; however, it would appear that you need this on the serial no field and not the date field.  Furthermore, you would not include this max in the JOIN but instead simply use its value in selection if the serial no of current row is NULL or Blank.  

An alternative, would be to use sub query only on the rows that had NULL or Blank via a similar case statement.  

It will probably be good to know if the actual records are NULL or '' (empty or blank string).

Your case statement could look something like:

case when maincardserialno is null
   then -- our calculation here
   else maincardserialno -- leave serial no in place
end

Here is a technique for adding 17 to the serial number without having to do on last 2 characters only and having to worry about going above 100.

declare @ttmaincardserialno varchar(100);
set @ttmaincardserialno='006000005023015007000000002000134184';

select replicate('0', patindex('%[^0]%', @ttmaincardserialno)-1)+convert(char(36), convert(numeric(36,0), @ttmaincardserialno)+17)

So putting it all together:


;with t
as
(
   select * 
   from txnenrollment 
   where enrolled=1
)
select t.enrollmentdate, t.villagecode
     , case when t.maincardserialno is null
          then replicate('0', patindex('%[^0]%', tmax.maincardserialno)-1)+convert(char(36), convert(numeric(36,0), tmax.maincardserialno)+17)
          else t.maincardserialno
       end as maincardserialno
from t
join (
   select villagecode
        , max(maincardserialno) as maincardserialno
   from t
   group by villagecode
) tmax on tmax.villagecode = t.villagecode
order by enrollmentdate, villagecode, maincardserialno desc
;
