I want to set the SUFFIX column to the value of the ID column if the value of the URL occurs more than once

For example in this case...
URL		SUFFIX	ID
/test.html	Null	1
/test.html	Null	2
/test.html	Null	3

Open in new window


...as the URL exists more than once then the Suffix should be set to the ID for each entry
