How Dissolve (Data Management) works—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS Desktop 

dissolve on your gridcode field... you will lose the from-to node information in the process, so think about what you need before you complete the process

Thank you Dan,

In fact I discovered a way to solve this problem, it is so easy and fast and accurate, and we will not lose any attributes,and we will keep every stream of a specific order isolated from each other even if there are in spatial touch.

this will save time and accuracy to person that has interest in this issue

Now I'm asking for advice

I want to publish this method, but how do I do that with the guarantee of intellectual property rights

hmmmm I belong to the camp of 'share widely and let it be known'... if you want to commercialize it, that is a different story
