I have a table that I have imported from excel
Firstname, Lastname, LoginID. THis table contains over 900 users. We have a table that is the master table and for every user ther is a unique instance id. How can I import the new users into the master table and have the instance id auto increment for each new record?

Is the unique instance id an identity column? If it is, it'll auto-increment on its own just by not including the column name in the insert/select query.

If it's not an identity column, you can use ROW_NUMBER() function to get number them.
