Rows split to columns


I have a table that has 2 cols From and To

The values are say from=1 and to=9 and in the second row from=10 and to=20

I need SQL to turn that into 1 column listing 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,910,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20

can you provide a sample of the data and specify the table/fields?
are [from] and [to] fields integers?
are there other fields in the table to "group by"?
and, would there ever be gaps in the output number sequence (if so when)?

category-A| 1,2,3,4,5,6
category-B| 20,21,23,24,25,26
category-C| 1,2,3,4,5,6,20,21,23,24,25,26 -- with gap ??

declare @t table ( [from] int, [to] int)
insert into @t values ( 1, 9 )
insert into @t values ( 10, 20 )

;with data as (
  select [from], [to] from @t
   union all
   select [from] + 1, [to] from data
   where [from] < [to]
, ordered as ( select top 99.999999 percent [from] from data order by [from]  )

SELECT * FROM ordered

Was enough, I just want the data going down in one column.  Thanks for help
