I am trying to update the ID # in this table based on Type. I keep getting the error "Windowed functions can only appear in the SELECT or ORDER BY clauses." I've tried changing it based on other things I've read but I just can't get it to work. I'm sure it's something very simple. What is wrong with this code?:

UPDATE Loc
SET Custom15 = ID
,Id =CASE Type
WHEN 'FMTD' THEN '10-'
WHEN 'FM8' THEN '20-'
END + CAST(999+ROW_NUMBER( ) OVER (PARTITION BY Type ORDER BY Loc) AS VARCHAR(15))

Thanks in advance!!

update l
set    Custom15 = ID
       ,Id = NEW_ID
from
(
    select *, NEW_ID = CASE Type
                       WHEN 'FMTD' THEN '10-'
                       WHEN 'FM8' THEN '20-'
                       END + CAST(999+ROW_NUMBER( ) OVER (PARTITION BY Type ORDER BY Loc) AS VARCHAR(15))
    from   Loc
