indeed, best to filter it out with sql.

Even better: remove the duplicate entrys with some smart code so you don't have to filter them out with sql.

Even better: prevent the duplicate entrys from getting into the system (some error in entering the data??)

Generally, you can add a "Group By" clause in order to show only grouped records, example:

Select empid, date1, timein, type1 from DTR Group By empid, date1, timein, type1

Hope this helps

I agree with DoppyNL,
When updating your table with the information - have a query that checks to see if the data is in the table prior to you updating the table with the information. Its a little more in the code, but it will clean up your Database considerably.
