I have a table with bill of material information.  I would like to be able to generate a report that shows for each Parent_Part_Num, all of the sub components and any of those sub components that have sub components.

For example:

Parent_Part_Num

123456-001
.............Lvl1....222222-001
....................Lvl2....333333-001
....................Lvl2....444444-001
.............Lvl1....555555-001
.............Lvl1....666666-001


My bill of material source table (BOM_RAW) is structured like this.

Parent_Part_Num      Child_Part_Num
123456-001                555555-001
123456-001                666666-001
222222-001                333333-001
222222-001                444444-001

Is this type of report possible?

The report could even be like this.

PARENT_PART_NUM         LEVEL         CHILD
123456-001                       01               222222-001
123456-001                       01               333333-001
123456-001                       02               444444-001
123456-001                       02               555555-001
123456-001                       03               666666-001

Thank you for responding.  Do I have specifically call out the parent and child numbers?  Is it just possible to have the output look like the following?

Parent_Part Number     Level       Child_Part_Num

change the last statement to this

SELECT Parent_Part Number, levl as [Level] ,Child_Part_Num
 FROM MyCTE

All this seems to give me is everything that is level 1, I was hoping to have multiple levels for Parent_Part_Num

You are right, I selected the wrong portion of the solution.  How do I reopen?

I don't know if I need to create a new question but how would I use a where statement to only find BOM's from a input table to join Parent_Part_Number?
