This is an interbase question!

I run the following query in interbase 5.5:

select h.socialsecuritynumber,h.lastname,
h.firstname,s.underggradcollege,h.homecity,h.homestatecode,
(select min(termid) from coursetaker where studentid=h.humanid) startterm
from coursetaker c,human h,student s
where
c.studentid=h.humanid
and
h.humanid=s.belongstohumanid
and
c.termid between 10009 and 10106
order by h.lastname,h.firstname

It works ok, but one thing. I want non-duplicate records. I put distinct after select and before all the fields and it gives an error:

General SQL error.
Invalid request BLR at offset 215
context already in use (BLR error).

Does anybody know how can I run the above query for distinct records?
Thank you.

I think that if you use 'group by ' for all your fields you ought to be alright.

You are right. I did found the answer already by using group by and distinct at the same time.
Then, I wanted to do something more:

select h.socialsecuritynumber,h.lastname,
h.firstname,s.underggradcollege,h.homecity,h.homestatecode,
(select termcode from term where termid in
(select min(termid) from coursetaker where studentid=h.humanid)) startterm
from coursetaker c,human h,student s
where
c.studentid=h.humanid
and
h.humanid=s.belongstohumanid
and
c.termid between 10009 and 10106
order by h.lastname,h.firstname

and this one runs forever.

You have the points, but I was just wondering if you have a suggestion there too. You have been of great help...

Thank you.
