Is there an attribute that will identify the Row id
in a Transact SQL Statement or stored procedure ?
I know they have row id in Oracle but am unsure of SQL SERVER 2000

No. You would need to create a primary key on your table to ensure that each row is uniquely identifiable. You can use an identity column (not recommended) or a GUID column to generate unique values, but they DO NOT work like rowid or rownum in Oracle, because they are not row "numbers". Row numbers are not a relational database feature.

If you're looking to number you rows based on how your SQL Statement orders the records then take a look.
