First, I must use a SQL Server 2000 database.  

I have a dataset that looks like this:

supplierid      deliverydate      familyid      productid      QtyOrdered
8010382      2014-01-20 00:00:00.000            30898      40496      2
8010382      2014-01-20 00:00:00.000            30908      40506      4
8010382      2014-01-20 00:00:00.000            30909      40507      2
8010382      2014-01-20 00:00:00.000            30910      40508      3
8010382      2014-01-20 00:00:00.000            30913      40511      2
8010382      2014-01-20 00:00:00.000            31513      41126      2
8010382      2014-01-20 00:00:00.000            31514      41127      2
8010382      2014-01-20 00:00:00.000            31557      41171      2
8010382      2014-01-20 00:00:00.000            32119      41775      5
8010476      2014-01-19 00:00:00.000            30993      40591      1
8010453      2014-01-19 00:00:00.000            31034      40632      1
8010453      2014-01-19 00:00:00.000            31035      40633      1
8010453      2014-01-19 00:00:00.000            31045      40643      1

I need to write a file for each distinct supplierid.  I cannot use a cursor.  

For example I need 3 text files..one for 8010382, 8010476 and 8010453.    I need to read all the records for 8010382 and write to a file, then do the same for the other two.

How can I loop through this table without using a cursor.  I would normally use a CTE, but I cannot because of the version of SQl I must use.

Anybody have any ideas.

Thanks.

ok this what you can do

declare @MinID BIGINT
DECLARE @maxID BINGT

SELECT @minID = MIN(supplierID) FRom <yourTable>
SELECT @MaxID = mAX(supplierID) from <your table>
WHILE @minID <= @maxID
BEGIN

-- Write to File using @minID

SELECT TOP 1 @minID = SupplierID 
FROM <your Table>
where supplierID > @minID
ORDER BY supplierID 


END

how do you actually "plan" to "write" to a file?

@Hengel, if the question is for me, I left that part to user, as he might already have the command or else a I could have filled it up with a simple BCP out.
