Try this...

SELECT DISTINCT(INVOICE_NUMBER, CUSTOMER_NUMBER, CUSTOMER_NAME,
INVOICE_DATE, INOICE_AMOUNT), FUND, DEPARTMENT, ACCOUNT, PROJECT, JOB FROM
INVOICEDETAIL ORDER BY FUND, DEPARTMENT, ACCOUNT, PROJECT, JOB

Basically you just put () around the fields that make the record unique in
your situation.

Subject
Puzzling SQL Statement






I am working on figuring out a fix for a bug that came up after I added a
feature the user requested. I don't want duplicate invoices listed, but
they
now are. This is the problem SQL statement.

SELECT DISTINCT INVOICE_NUMBER, CUSTOMER_NUMBER, CUSTOMER_NAME,
INVOICE_DATE, INVOICE_AMOUNT, FUND, DEPARTMENT, ACCOUNT, PROJECT, JOB FROM
INVOICEDETAIL ORDER BY FUND, DEPARTMENT, ACCOUNT, PROJECT, JOB

I know the problem and why the problem is there (the FUND, DEPARTMENT,
ACCOUNT, PROJECT, JOB is the account number for the item), but my question
is how can I fix it? I can't remove those fields from the select because
then the ORDER BY doesn't work. Any ideas on how I can pull this query
off?
