Of course the problem is that the XMSMN1 field isn't distint. You'll
have to use MIN or SUM on it.
INSERT INTO NEWSYS/EMLCMP (EMLADDR, EMEMP#) SELECT XMMAIL, MIN(XMSmn1)
FROM posmstp WHERE xmmail <> ' ' GROUP BY XMMAIL, XMSmn1

I have records in posmstp like this:
I want the resultant table to be:
In other words, I just want the values from the first XMMAIL record I
encounter. I though the DISTINCT would do that. What do I need to do?
