Not sure why you have not tried your SQL in STRSQL or Run SQl Scripts,
but from your description I guess something like:
SELECT DISTINCT OrdHst.ordernbr, OrdNbr.trans
FROM OrdHst JOIN OrdNbr
ON OrdHst.ordernbr = OrdNbr.ordernbr
ORDER BY 1,2

Subject: use of select distinct
Can I do this as a distinct selection?
order number trans
In the program, we are reading the order history, We join with those order numbers which have an '001' above. Now we also want to display the PWB code.
But, we only want to display that one time. currently the program is including all occurances so there is an extra line.
I am thinking of creating logical view that would contain 001 and pwb only.
but how to remove the extra pwb rec?
I am thinking with a select distinct on ordernumber and trans.
can this be done?
