[quote][b]... In lieu of using a permanent table I use a view that creates the tally table on the fly. 0 reads to access it and I don't have to remember the syntax over and over....


It works well as an iTVF too!

ALTER FUNCTION [dbo].[InlineTally]
(@RowCount INT)
RETURNS TABLE WITH SCHEMABINDING AS
RETURN
(
WITH E1(N) AS (
SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1 UNION ALL
SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1 UNION ALL
SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1
),
E2(N) AS (SELECT 1 FROM E1 a, E1 b, E1 c), -- 10 x 10 x 10 rows
E4(N) AS (SELECT 1 FROM E2 a, E2 b) --1000 x 1000 rows max

SELECT TOP (@RowCount) n = ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY (SELECT NULL)) FROM E4
)
GO
SELECT * FROM dbo.InlineTally (100000)

That is pretty cool too. Nice to have either option.
