Hello,

I'm trying to generate a column in a SQL Server 2008 query  where I can have a sequential number for all the order records that include their order details.  I basically want to have a sequential number grouped by order number, which can be repeated if the order has multiple rows.

In this case, the first row is what I need.


MySq      Ord#      Product            OrdDetailSeq
1      42825      widget1            1
2      42828      widget3            1
3      42829      widget1            1
3      42829      widget2            2
3      42829      widget4            3
4      42832      widget2            1
4      42832      widget3            2
5      42837      widget2            1


Does anyone know how to accomplish this?

Thanks.

Not sure what 'In this case, the first row is what I need.' means, but looking at the desired set and the rest of the description OrdDetailSeq can be generated using ROW_NUMBER:  
SELECT MySq, [Ord#], Product, 
  ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY [Ord#] ORDER BY Product) as OrdDetailSeq
FROM YourTable

Thank you for replying, but what I need is the first column: MySq.  The rest of the columns are already there.  I need the sequential number for each set of rows that share the same order number.

Your question said 'first row', which confused everyone.  Try this
SELECT 
   RANK() OVER (ORDER BY [Ord#]) as MySq, 
   [Ord#], Product, OrdDetailSeq
FROM YourTable
