trigger/store procedure

we have a table, that every time a specific use queries it/retrieve data, we want the current record to be send to be last.

For this, we can create a "counter" field that will do this.

What would be the best approach to do this, should we use SQL from the server side asp file, a trigger or a stored procedure ?

In SQL would be something like:

SELECT USERNAME, DESCRIPTION, RECORDID, COUNTER FROM TABLE1 ORDER BY COUNTER

then...

UPDATE TABLE1 SET description = description.Text()  Where username = SUserName.Text()
and recordid = recordid.Text()

then

Rs.Movelast;  (classic asp)

sCOUNTER  = Rs.("Counter") +1;

UPDATE TABLE1 SET Counter =  wCOUNTER

Its possible i'm misunderstanding what you're asking, but I think you're just wanting the last updated record to be at the top. Why not add a datetime field and set it to the current date in your update statement?

UPDATE TABLE1
SET description = description.Text(),
lastModified = CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
Where username = SUserName.Text()
and recordid = recordid.Text()

...then when you select, order by lastModified DESC

1)  Do you mean you want to display latest inserted record last  ?
     if so

create trigger on insert

UPDATE TABLE1
SET lastModified = now()
Where username = SUserName.Text()
and recordid = recordid.Text()


2)   if you want last access records by using selection or updation query

create trigger on select,Update

UPDATE TABLE1
SET lastModified = now()
Where username = SUserName.Text()
and recordid = recordid.Text()

=============================================================================

                    ==> if you want last updated record last :->

                          SELECT USERNAME, DESCRIPTION, RECORDID, COUNTER FROM TABLE1 ORDER BY LASTMODIFIED

                    ==> if you want last updated record first:->

                           SELECT USERNAME, DESCRIPTION, RECORDID, COUNTER FROM TABLE1 ORDER BY LASTMODIFIED DESC
