Hi,

I have a table called DeliveryPosition. To simplify my question I've stripped a number of fields.

Table and data looks like this:

DeliveryPosId Desc PrecisionId
22591 Main1 NULL
22592 Main2 NULL
22872 test1 22591
22873 test2 22591
22874 test11 22592
22875 test22 22592

I want to have DeliveryPosId = 22591 and then the rows with PrecisionId = 22591. Then main row no 2 which is DeliveryPosId = 22592 and the corresponding rows.

I'm stuck! Is there an easy way to do this in t-sql or do I need view, temporary table etc?

SELECT * FROM dbo.Table1
ORDER BY COALESCE(PrecisionID, DeliveryPosID), DeliveryPosID;

Hi again, I found a new problem. Sometimes PrecisionId can be 0 instead of NULL then using COALSCE won't work. Any ideas?

ORDER BY COALESCE(NULLIF(PrecisionID,0), DeliveryPosID), DeliveryPosID;
