simple solution would be to add an extra id column incrementing by 1 this would order them by default in the order processed

And here is how:

Declare another int variable @cnt and replace first 3 lines with below:
SELECT	@cnt = isnull(@cnt, 0) + 1,
@DynamicQuery = ISNULL(@DynamicQuery+' UNION  ','') 
+ 'SELECT ' + CONVERT(varchar, @cnt) + ' SlNo, CONVERT(varchar(max),'+COLUMN_NAME+') as varColumnName,'
