That's an interesting idea. I added a trim like the following, but, it does appear to order by the tree depth I was hoping for. Thank you for the idea.

order by connect_by_root(BPROD)

I suggest using SYS_CONNECT_BY_PATH to build a string that contains the desired sort.

order by connect_by_root(BPROD)
, SYS_CONNECT_BY_PATH( cast( BSEQ as Char(20)),':' )

Subject: Hierarchal queries and order by siblings

I'd like to do something like the following, where I can sort by the parent, but then within the parent, sort the siblings, but, this violates SQL syntax. I can choose to sort on one or the other, but not both. Is there a way to do this, or should I use the CTE method when selecting multiple parents?


connect_by_root(BPROD) as TOPPARENT,

level as CurLVL,

bchld as Child

from MBM

start with BPROD in (select PROD from PARTLIST)

connect by nocycle prior BCHLD=BPROD

order by connect_by_root(BPROD), siblings by BSEQ
