Report often include sequence number/ serial number on its content. How to create a sequence number in SQL Server Reporting Services? Here is a sample.
As an example I still use this report.
Right click on column labeled "No. Siswa" then choose Insert Column to the Left.

Set label column name with No. Urut (means sequence number) and adjust column width.
Right click on detail cell of "No. Urut" then choose menu Expression...
Choose function RowNumber from Common Function -> Miscellaneous. Type dataset name "DBSAMPLE" as scope parameter to get sequence that applied to report content globally.
= RowNumber("DBSAMPLE")
The result is number sequenced from the beginning of report to last row.
Otherwise if we want to sequence only per group change scope parameter to group name "grpYear"
= RowNumber("grpYear")
The result is number sequenced per group.
