Hi All,

          I am working on CustomerMaster & CustomerDetail tables. In Detail table, there are many records for one customerID and CustomerID is the PK in Master table . I want to create a SQL statement which should include all the records from Master Table and first matching record from the Detail Table.
How do we write a SQL sttement.?
Any help on this problem is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
SMV
