ORDER BY RIGHT('00000'+MyColumn, n)
where n is the length of you column. Ensure that there are enough 0's.

Something like this:

Select *
From yourTable
Order By (Case When col=1 then 0 else 1 End), Col1

Hmm, I think that we must have interpreted his post differently, Chris.

Hmm, I think that we must have interpreted his post differently, Chris.

Heh - yeah, think so. I didn't read it properly first time. "1" first, followed by everything else including "0", in an unspecified sorted order.

Sanjay, can you list these items in the order in which you wish them to appear?

Hi! Chris Morris
Thanx for reply




region Id   ParentId   Text
a1   1   wwer
b1   1   yrt
c1   1   ryrt
a11   a1   eryrty
b11   b1   nbnvnfth
c11   c1   vc
b111   b11   vbc
a111   a11   cb
c111   c11   bc
      
      
      
result should be      
      
a1   1   wwer
b1   1   yrt
c1   1   ryrt
then all rest values sort order by parent id      
      
      
The major issues is this that the parent id is generated by Java Random method as string and it can be any thing      
but the first parent id is assign the manual   

i hope you got the issues ,

waiting for ur reply

Regards,
Sanjay

Hi Sanjay

I'm still not totally sure of your requirement but try this - it will generate the sort order you're expecting from the given sample data.

DROP TABLE #Temp
CREATE TABLE #Temp (regionId VARCHAR(10), ParentId VARCHAR(10), TextColumn VARCHAR(10))
INSERT INTO #Temp (regionId, ParentId, TextColumn)
SELECT 'a1', '1', 'wwer' UNION ALL
SELECT 'b1', '1', 'yrt' UNION ALL
SELECT 'c1', '1', 'ryrt' UNION ALL
SELECT 'a11', 'a1', 'eryrty' UNION ALL
SELECT 'b11', 'b1', ' nbnvnfth' UNION ALL
SELECT 'c11', 'c1', 'vc' UNION ALL
SELECT 'b111', 'b11', 'vbc' UNION ALL
SELECT 'a111', 'a11', 'cb' UNION ALL
SELECT 'c111', 'c11', 'bc'

SELECT RIGHT('000000000' + regionId, 10), *
FROM #Temp
ORDER BY RIGHT('000000000' + regionId, 10), ParentId

This is Barry's original case method applied to your table structure.

SELECT * 
FROM #Temp
ORDER BY (CASE WHEN ParentID = '1' THEN 0 ELSE 1 END), ParentId



Notice the way Chris posted your table structure and sample data. Please use this format in future posts, as it makes things much easier for us to deal with. For more instructions on how to do this, please see the link in either of our signatures. Thanks for the inserts Chris. Cool
