I have approximately 4700 shipments where I need to grab a sampling based on every 8 the shipment. What I'd like to do is generate a line number when I select the 4700 shipments but start from one after each 8th occurrence.

i.e.
Line            Shipment #
1            Shipment 1
2            Shipment 2
3            Shipment 3
4            Shipment 4
5            Shipment 5
6            Shipment 6
7            Shipment 7
8            Shipment 8
1            Shipment 9
2            Shipment 10
3            Shipment 11
………

Thanks
