Add a composite key (Index+parent index) and change the order_id column to consecutive numbers across that composite key as needed.

Add a composite key (Index+parent index) and change the order_id column to consecutive numbers across that composite key as needed.

But when it comes for visualizing, I still want to use column "Index" and "Parent_Index" seperately for visual's column labels. Creating composite key and sorting it by distinct consecutive order_id seem not really help. 

You can still do that. Try in out.

It worked!! So sorry for late response.
Thank you very much.
