I have a developer that would like, when doing a select statement with no order by, the rows in a table to be in the order they were inserted. The developer suggested changing from a clustered to non-clustered index.
By changing the index from clustered to non-clustered, does this make any guarantees about the order in which rows would appear in the table?
This question is mostly for my curiosity; I am going to suggest using an identity column instead, but this request got me thinking. Timestamp could be used but there is a chance rows can be inserted simultaneously.
Thanks in advance for your help.
