My data looks like this:

rowid      NewDetailData
 1      0BATCH-NEXTGEN-NEXTGENEMR-20160829CPM-651
 2      1P0007.63579.0000-1609168541-899972053-1230-CN25

 18      56-278.02
 19      57-V85.24
 20      71174807291

A single RECORD consists of having the 1st Character of the DetailData field between 1-7.

For example RowID 2-6 are for a SINGLE RECORD, RowID 7-10 are for a SINGLE RECORD, etc...etc..

I need a SQL SELECT Script that will "assign" a unique RowID_2 to all of the ROWS (1-7) for each record. I need something like this:

rowid , RowID_2, NewDetailData
 2,1,1P0007.63579.0000-1609168541-899972053-1230-CN25
 3,1,2P201608232016082399348-1-0-1
 4,1,51-401.9
 5,1,52-719.45
 6,1,71609168541
 7,2,1P0007.63512.0000-1093765679-100458751-1230-CN25
 8,2,2P201608262016082699347-1-0-1
 9 ,2,51-787.01
 10,2,71093765679
 11,3,1P0014.236945.0000-1174807291-2254912701-1230-GW23
 12,3,2P201608252016082599341-1-0-1
 13,3,51-402.10
 14,3,52-272.2
 15,3,53-250.00
 16,3,54-244.9
 17,3,55-414.01
 18,3,56-278.02

I'm afraid your words don't seem to explain fully the second (new) column called  RowID_2

why id row_2 = 1 for these?
 2,1,1P0007.63579.0000-1609168541-899972053-1230-CN25
 3,1,2P201608232016082399348-1-0-1
 4,1,51-401.9
 5,1,52-719.45
 6,1,71609168541


why id row_2 = 2 for these?
 7,2,1P0007.63512.0000-1093765679-100458751-1230-CN25
 8,2,2P201608262016082699347-1-0-1
 9 ,2,51-787.01
 10,2,71093765679

why id row_2 = 3 for these?
 11,3,1P0014.236945.0000-1174807291-2254912701-1230-GW23
 12,3,2P201608252016082599341-1-0-1
 13,3,51-402.10
 14,3,52-272.2
 15,3,53-250.00
 16,3,54-244.9
 17,3,55-414.01
 18,3,56-278.02
 19,3,57-V85.24
 20,3,71174807291

and why does rowid start at 2 in the second list?

The assignment of RowID_2 the numbers 1,2,3 was purely done based on SEQUENCE. This RowID_2 will simply increment by one throughout the entire LIST of RECORDS. I'm attempting to GROUP all records together by using the RowID_2 and assigning it a unique ID field.

RowID starts with 2 because the first row of data, in the DetailData field started with a '0', not '1-7'. I don't need any rows returned that have a DetailData start character of '0', just ignore it. Incidentally, this is the FILE HEADER....and there is a file FOOTER...which I think starts with '9'.

So I don't need rows where DetailData starts with a '0' or a '9'...

Additionally,  I guess a BETTER name for the column "RowID_2" should be.... "RECORD_ID".

Since this column really identifies the RECORD which spans multiple ROWS of data... 1-7....

FYI,...once I can assign this RECORD_ID, then I'll use it to further build my code to concatenate rows 1-7 INTO A SINGLE ROW OF DATA..for each RECORD.... which is my ultimate goal....

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This is the closest I can get right now (time limited)
data
declare @YourTable table
    ([rowid] int, [NewDetailData] varchar(50))
;
    
INSERT INTO @YourTable
    ([rowid], [NewDetailData])

    (1, '0BATCH-NEXTGEN-NEXTGENEMR-20160829CPM-651'),

wasn't able to get to your other question as it's deleted now, so I presume you found a way to produce a comma separated list.
