select 5 records from customers table for each city, so i guess something like select top 5 customerid from tablename group by city?  i would hope to return:

NY, CUSTOMERID1
NY, CUSTOMERID2
NY, CUSTOMERID3
NY, CUSTOMERID4
NY, CUSTOMERID5
LON, CUSTOMERID1
LON, CUSTOMERID2
LON, CUSTOMERID3
LON, CUSTOMERID4
LON, CUSTOMERID5

Hi,

Hope this is not homework. :-)


SELECT * FROM
(
SELECT Country, CustomerName, ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY Country ORDER BY Country DESC) AS 'Row'
from table1
)
WHERE Row <= 5
