Adding an autonumber that resets every month

P: 1
I have a simple SQL server table with 4 fields - id, date, transactions.
I want to create an additional column that gives the ranking of each record within that month based on the number of transactions.
Is there any easy way to do this ?

I would suggest that the approach that you take will depend on what you want to do with the data. If you are wanting to only return one month at a time (for example, the user provides a month and you return all the records for the month), then you could query the table, order by Transactions DESC, and put this into a temporary table that has a auto increment. Then you could SELECT the temp table, and the increment would give you the number you are after.

Hope this helps.
