I am in the AdventureWorks2012 database. I am creating a temp table to hold row numbers, and in the 2nd column I am inserting the values from a column in the Production.WorkOrder table. Here is my code:

CREATE TABLE #table4 (rowNumber INT IDENTITY(1,1), prod INT)

INSERT INTO #table4 (prod)
SELECT ProductID FROM Production.WorkOrder

FROM #table4

The 1st 5 values for ProductID in Production.WorkOrder are 722,725,726, 729, 730. But my results for the TEMP table are showing as:

rowNumber column = 22849, 22850, 22851, 22852, 22853
prod column = 534, 534, 534, 534, 534

Why aren't the 1st 5 values for the rowNumber column in the TEMP table showing as 1 thru 5? Why aren't the 1st 5 values for the prod column in the TEMP table 722,725,726, 729, 730?

How are you getting the first 5 values?
How many rows are in your temp table?

How this happened >> rowNumber column = 22849, 22850, 22851, 22852, 22853 ?
rownumber should start with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ........

one thing you do..
-- run this script for re-populate data into that table
DELETE FROM #table4;
SELECT ProductId FROM Production.WorkOrder;
SELECT * FROM #table4;

Then you can find out the rownumber start with 1.

Secondly, run this select statement (SELECT ProductId FROM Production.WorkOrder; ). Post us the first 5 records

show us how you're doing population of #TEMP table. Are you applying filters after rownumber generation? if yes then you cant expect it to return rownos 1 to 5.
