SQL Server 2005
I have a follow-up question to the article Navigate hierarchies using recursive common table expressions. I have an employee hierarchy that follows a similar pattern to the article, but I need to be able to sort my data alphabetically within each level. Do you have any advice on how to accomplish this?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Assuming that you use code similar to this:

WITH EmployeeCTE
AS
(
 SELECT
  EmployeeID,
  1 AS Level
 FROM HumanResources.Employee
 WHERE ManagerID IS NULL

 UNION ALL

 SELECT
  E.EmployeeID,
  x.Level + 1 AS Level
 FROM HumanResources.Employee E
 JOIN EmployeeCTE x ON x.EmployeeID = E.ManagerID
)
SELECT
 EmployeeID,
 Level
FROM EmployeeCTE

You can do an order by on the Level, then the LastName.
