How to count number of rows before an ID in SQL Server

I need to count the total number of rows in a table before the certain row ID.

I have this query

select count (ClientID)

FROM [Seek].[dbo].[seekClient]

where ClientID < '12'

which works fine for the case of integer primary key, but I am not sure how to do that in case of GUID ??

Kindly help me in this case.

Hi Ben,

You should use a different column (not id) that defines what you mean by 'before'. It might be, for example, a 'DateOfCreation', 'creation_date' etc. column.
