Is it my imagination or have we had a lot of incomprehensible questions in the last couple of days?
More than usual?
Or maybe old age is getting to me.

==========================================
Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
SSIS can be used in a similar way.

Just re-read that one with some more replies.
The double tool shed says he gets no helpful replies, yet there was one sending him to the help forums for the FREAKING PRODUCT HE IS USING!

Our data is in MS SQL SERVER. We do not use T-SQL. You cannot use queries in T_SQL! It isn't a real language and it has no structure!!

Obviously, you would want this information on each policy, instead of storing it in a different table.
...
[AgencyPrefix] [nvarchar](10) NULL,
...
[Agency] [nvarchar](80) NULL,
[AgencyDetailAddress1] [nvarchar](255) NULL,
[AgencyDetailAddress2] [nvarchar](255) NULL,
[AgencyDetailCity] [nvarchar](30) NULL,
[AgencyDetailFax] [nvarchar](12) NULL,
[AgencyDetailName] [nvarchar](80) NULL,
[AgencyDetailPhone] [nvarchar](12) NULL,
[AgencyDetailState] [nvarchar](2) NULL,
[AgencyDetailZip] [nvarchar](10) NULL,
...
[AgencyName] [nvarchar](80) NULL,
[AgencyCode] [nvarchar](80) NULL,
...

And our agency "Prefixes" are exactly 2 chars long, never used without the code that is always 4 chars long,e.g., AA1234, but it's good to know we have to room grow!

Everyone tells the same thing; You must specify an ORDER BY in the outermost query.
