Hi,

thanks for the reply, for this exercise there will always be 7 serials per box.

However there is data in the table that has 42 serials in a box, will that cause a problem ?

Thanks


Nope. Look at the example I linked yesterday. It will show exactly how to do this kind of thing.

OK. Then I am not going to post the code because you need to understand any code that you use. Let's break this down into pieces to help you understand what is going on.

The first step was to create a cte to allow us to number the rows. Do you understand the cte I used? Did you understand why I did that?
