I have the data in Exhibit 1 of the attachment which I get by running the query shown below. However, what I am looking to do is to get my data to look like Exhibit 2 of the attached so that I only retain the records with the later Mod_Date for every Loan_ID by setting row1=1. Can anyone please offer their input? Any help would be extremely appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
 
select  t.Loan_ID, t.Mod_Option, t.Mod_Date, t.Loan_UPB, t.row1,
            row_number() over(partition by Mod_Option) as row2
from(select  Loan_ID, Mod_Option, Mod_Date, Loan_UPB,
            row_number() over(partition by Loan_ID order by a.Mod_Date) as row1
           from Exhibit1) t

using copy/paste only, into a "code block" you get this:
Exhibit 1:
Loan_ID  Mod_Option    Mod_Date     Loan_UPB   row1  row2
1341               3                  10/2/2011       123,876       1          1
1341               3                  10/2/2011       123,876       2          2
1341               3                  10/2/2011       123,531       3          3

You need RANK() or DENSE_RANK() instead of row_number()

The RANK/DENSE_RANK functions will allow repeating a number (e.g. 4 rows of each with 1) but row_number simply will not do that.

SELECT
        t.Loan_ID
      , t.Mod_Option
      , t.Mod_Date
      , t.Loan_UPB
      , t.row1
FROM (SELECT
                Loan_ID
              , Mod_Option
              , Mod_Date
              , Loan_UPB
              , DENSE_RANK() OVER (PARTITION BY Loan_ID ORDER BY CAST(a.Mod_Date as date) DESC) AS row1
        FROM Exhibit1
     ) t

Open in new window

Note I have used CAST(... as date)  to ensure you are dealing with dates and not dates with time, if that column's data is already date then the cast is not necessary.
