I am trying to find a suitable code that lets me to update a numerical column (namely, "RevOdrNo") of a sorted query table (not a separate table) with autonumbers (e.g. 1,2,3,4,5,6) in ArcGIS 10.3's Field Calculator without using the physical IDs (=not sorted). I sorted this query table by right clicking the heading of the other numerical column (namely, "AX_Co") and clicking "Sort Ascending (or Descending)".
I have had a look at a number of the websites including the following link, but none of them seems to work for the sorted query table because they rely on the 'physical' order of the table rows.
http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#//00170000004s000000.htm (See the section of "Accumulative and sequential calculations")
I have had a thought about using the Sort tool in ArcGIS, but it asks for the output table name, which means that the query table will become a separate table, which I don't want to see.
Does anyone have any ideas of how to do it?
