A Paris 2
B London 1
B Madrid 2
B Tripoli 3
C Lima 1
C Berlin 2

What do you mean? Where is the sequential numbering? Is this the A, A, B, B, or the 1, 2, 1, or a column not shown?

Do you need to have the sequential numbering in a report? If so, that is easy to do. Why in the query?

So mkapler,

Do you want these sequential numbers in a report? Like mmcdonal mentionned it is very easy to do in a report. Query cannot do this.

Please reply so that we know what you want. Thanks
