Can someone point me in the right direction.  We have some files that populate the system that come in with the same container_id with the same pallet_id.  What I am looking for is a away to automate a fix in the sql table as our ERP system doesn't allow this to happen and I can't change how this comes from the source. How would I add a number on the end to make this a unique pallet_id for that particular container_id.  

Example (add a number)
container_id	part_code	pallet_id

I am getting this error when I run that.

Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'ORDER'.

RowID is not a recognized built in function name  --This shows up when I put my mouse over RowID in the query.


select container_ID, Part_Code, pallet_id + CAST(ROWID() OVER(Container_ID ORDER BY Part_Code) as varchar(2)
FROM edi856in


SELECT TOP 5 container_id,part_code,pallet_id, rowid

FROM edi856in


container_id	part_code	pallet_id	rowid
2462024	4538	6007960038-1	103836
2462024	7531	6007960038-1	103837
2462024	7919	6007960038-1	103838
2462024	8556	6007960038-1	103839

give a try if you are working in 2005 or later.
;WITH CTE AS (
SELECT container_id,part_code,pallet_id,
       ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY container_id,pallet_id ORDER BY part_code) rn
  FROM YourTable)
SELECT container_id,part_code,pallet_id+CONVERT(VARCHAR,rn) pallet_id
  FROM CTE

I have never used CTE, so if I wanted to update it instead of select it what would I need to do?

This was my solution.  Thanks.

  WITH PID AS
(
  SELECT *, ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY container_id,pallet_id ORDER BY part_code) AS RN
  FROM edi856in
)
UPDATE PID
SET pallet_id = pallet_id + CAST(RN AS VARCHAR(255))
WHERE RN > 1;
