Assign different values to field for groups of records w/in same table

Assign different values to field for groups of records w/in same table

(OP)
I have a table that will contain imported sales records.  I want to evenly divide and assign the sales records to the different active salespeople (salespeople stored in different table).  

The table storing the imported records does not have a column to hold which sales person but can if needed.  After a salesperson is assigned to each record, the records will be moved into the sales table.  Any idea on how to programmatically divide up a group of records and assign a value to a specific field?  Also what happens if the number doesn't evenly divide?  

Any suggestions for how to tackle this problem is greatly appreciated :)
