How can I display the row number in the results of a SELECT query? For example:
Select empname from employees where city = "toronto"
I would like to show the row number as follows:
1 Fred 2 Bill 3 Jeff 4 June
You are probably better off handling such formatting issues in your front-end. In T-SQL, you would first have to build a table that mimics what your result set looks like with the addition of an identity column:
create table #result( id int identity(1,1), empname char(20))
Then insert your result set into the temporary table. Lastly, select out of the temporary result set.
I think you can see why a front-end should be able to handle this more easily.
