I have a table, 'answers' and a field on that table 'q_id', and another field 'num' (nothing is in 'num' right now).

Is there a way to run a query that will find all rows with matching 'q_id' and number them by putting 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5, ... in the 'num' field?  That way I can identify them even though the q_id is the same.

If possible, can you put it together for me please?

Thank you,  Chris
