I need to create a new output column in a query that will be used as a index.  I    can not use the existing field for security reasons (Col A)  So I must generate a new column (Col B)
Lets say that Col A is a Social Security Number and a call center person can not see it so we will create a new field Col B.  Later internally we will re associate the records.

Col A exists in the table Col B does not.  I can not modify the table

How can I create a query to do this.  A stored procedure will be ok as long as it produces a result set that I can see and export

Example

TableX

Col A           Col B
163777439     1
163777439     1
163777439     1
163777439     1
163777439     1
163777439     1
718108418     2
718108418     2
718108418     2
918233645     3
918233645     3
418323022     4
418323022     4
418323022     4
418323022     4
418434193     5

So ... is the point of the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 numbers in Column B just to have a 'placeholder' to Column A?

If so, and you want it in a query, meaning the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 won't be stored in a table, you can just use a RANK statement, sorted by whatever floats your boat...

SELECT ColA, RANK() OVER (ORDER BY ColA) as ColB
FROM YourTable
