select [lineno], part, qty  from orderslines where rec='S000001' order by [lineno]
produces
lineno      part      qty
1      10021      5.00
2      10370      2.00
3      10405      1.00

What I really want is multiple rows based upon the value in the qty column so the above would look like
1      10021      1.00    --- (5)
1      10021      1.00
1      10021      1.00
1      10021      1.00
1      10021      1.00

2      10370      1.00    --(2)
2      10370      1.00

3      10405      1.00  --(1)

You can do it this way with a couple loops and  temp tables
DECLARE @orderslines Table (
	ID int identity,
	[lineno] int,
	part varchar(50),
	qty int
	)
INSERT INTO @orderslines ([lineno], part, qty)
SELECT 1, '10021', 5

INSERT INTO @orderslines ([lineno], part, qty)
SELECT 2, '10370', 2

INSERT INTO @orderslines ([lineno], part, qty)
SELECT 1, '10405', 1

SELECT *
FROM @orderslines

DECLARE @LoopCounter int
SELECT @LoopCounter = MIN(ID) FROM @orderslines
DECLARE @LineCount int
DECLARE @LoopCounter2 int

DECLARE @Lines Table (
	[lineno] int,
	part varchar(50)
	)

WHILE @LoopCounter <= (SELECT MAX(ID) FROM @orderslines)
	BEGIN
			SELECT @LineCount = qty
			FROM @orderslines
			WHERE ID = @LoopCounter
	
			SET @LoopCounter2 = 1			
			WHILE @LoopCounter2 <= @LineCount
				BEGIN
					INSERT INTO @Lines ([lineno], part)
					SELECT [lineno], part
					FROM @orderslines
					WHERE ID = @LoopCounter

					SET @LoopCounter2 = @LoopCounter2 + 1

					IF @LoopCounter2 <= @LineCount	
						CONTINUE
					ELSE
						BREAK
				END
		SET @LoopCounter = @LoopCounter + 1
		
		IF @LoopCounter <= (SELECT MAX(ID) FROM @orderslines)
			Continue
		ELSE
			BREAK
	END
SELECT L.[lineno], L.part, 1
FROM @Lines L

with mynumbers as
(select row_Number() over(order by (select null)) as mynumber from sys.objects),
mytable as
(Select [lineno], part, 1 as myQty, row_number() over(partition by [lineno] order by (select null)) as myline
from orderslines 
cross join mynumbers
where rec='S000001' )
Select [lineno], part, myQty
from mytable
where myline <= myQty

the above only returns one line for each part. If the part has a qty of 5 I need 5 lines not one.

Oops. Try this:

with mynumbers as
(select row_Number() over(order by (select null)) as mynumber from sys.objects),
mytable as
(Select [lineno], part, Qty, row_number() over(partition by [lineno] order by (select null)) as myline
from orderslines 
cross join mynumbers
where rec='S000001' )
Select [lineno], part, 1 as myQty
from mytable
where myline <= Qty
