folks

I have the following data

location      sequence
la      10
la      11
sfo      45
sfo      46
ny      1
ny      2
ny      3

You can see the location each has a sequence number assigned to it, how in an insert can I add locations and carry on the sequence numbering to the group? i.e. if I add

la      12
ny      4
ny      5


the insert should add to the sequence per group like so:

location      number
la      10
la      11
la      12
sfo      45
sfo      46
ny      1
ny      2
ny      3
ny      4
ny      5


all help will do       sequence.xls
