Hi Experts, given the query attached and results, how do I get it to reset the row_number() every time the order_no changes?

So instead of the row_number() / line_number continually incrementing, I want it to go 1,2,3 then 1,2,3,4,5 depending on the lines in the order

Don't know exactly what you mean, but try changing:

SELECT row_number() over (ORDER BY [product])

to

SELECT row_number() over (PARTITION BY [product] ORDER BY [order_no])

You need to use partition by to reset row number.

SELECT ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY Order_No ORDER BY [Product]) as line_number,Order_no,product
,order_qty,CONVERT(VARCHAR(10),data_required,120) as date_required FROM t
