   s     225
   s     325  
   p     255  
   p     255  
   p     151  
   p     151  
   u     120  
   u     121  
   u     121

   u     121   2
   u     123   3
   .      .      .
   .      .      .

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure that this is what i want.

My table is sorted on culumn A.

My goal is to get the first ten appearances of the values in culumn B for each value in column A

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thank you capricorn1 for the query.

This is very close to what I want.

For it to be perfect I want the counting to be continuous like this:

1
1
2
2
2
3

your query gets me a result like this:

1
1
3
3
3
6

Thank you for your help
