Hi - Im hoping there is a howto someone can point me to for what is probably a common issue.

I have a list of customers in a parent table.
I have a list of orders in a child table, along with particulars relating to each order such as colour etc.

I would like to be able to restart the numbering of orders for each customer, so I can quickly view how many orders have been ordered by each customer? At the moment, the order list has a primary key that increments for each order, no matter which customer.

I hope this makes sense and Im really grateful for any help.

Thanks
Frank

you can put a logic using ROW_NUMBER for filling OrderSeqNo
get maxorderno for customer and
use logic like

MaxOrderSeqNo + ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY CustomerID ORDER BY OrderID)
