I think you can do this by playing with identity(), but you
have to do a select into, like so:
select column1 = identity(5), column2 into #t from table where ...
select * from #t
This can be run as a single command.
I don't think there is any way to dynamically number a result set with
Sybase (no pseudo-rownum value).
