.. and can I order all active records completly?

(without a loop)

Update table set prio = 1 to n where prio is not null order by prio?

Okay,

I would simply change the prio new in steps of 10.

Also I can do the following:

Priority in steps of 1

ID 10 Prio 1

ID 20 Prio 2

ID 23 Prio 3

ID 11 Prio 4

Now the user can Set the ID 23 to Prio 2, how can I realize this without a loop?

Update table set prio = newprio(1) where id = 20;

Update table set prio = prio – 1 where prio < newprio;

Update table set prio = prio + 1 where prio > newprio;

..more simplier?

You example is confusing.

If a user can never change the position of Record 4 ahead of Record 3 (as is the case in your example) what purpose does priority serve.

If you had said that the outcome you wanted was:

Record 1 from 3 to 10
Record 2 from 10 to 20
Record 4 to 30 <-*********
Record 3 from 20 (should 15, Destination between record 2 and record 3)) to 40 <-*********
Record 5 to 50

Then that would have made sense.

Please clarify, the problem domain does matter to the solution.
