Group query results

here is a query that i have set up:

SELECT dbo_EmailHistory.EmailID, dbo_EmailHistory.EDate, dbo_EmailHistory.Removed, dbo_EmailProsDetail.FClickDate
FROM dbo_EmailHistory LEFT JOIN dbo_EmailProsDetail ON dbo_EmailHistory.EmailID = dbo_EmailProsDetail.EmailID
WHERE (((dbo_EmailHistory.EDate) Between [Start Date] And [Stop Date]) AND ((dbo_EmailHistory.Removed) Is Null) AND ((dbo_EmailHistory.UserID) Not In (1,3,80))) OR (((dbo_EmailHistory.Removed)="isblank"));

i only need to see one record for each dbo_EmailHistory.EmailID, but because I am pulling data from dbo_EmailProsDetail there are some instances that I get multiple results for the same EmailID.  For example here are some of the results that i get when i run the query above:

EmailID      EDate                      Removed      FClickDate
396      5/1/2006 10:49:25 AM            5/1/2006 11:05:17 AM
396      5/1/2006 10:49:25 AM            5/1/2006 11:05:17 AM
397      5/2/2006 2:10:05 PM            5/2/2006 2:11:24 PM
397      5/2/2006 2:10:05 PM            5/2/2006 2:11:24 PM
399      5/2/2006 2:41:48 PM            5/2/2006 2:42:35 PM
399      5/2/2006 2:41:48 PM            5/2/2006 2:42:35 PM
399      5/2/2006 2:41:48 PM            5/2/2006 2:42:35 PM
400      5/2/2006 2:51:21 PM            5/2/2006 2:51:34 PM
400      5/2/2006 2:51:21 PM            5/2/2006 2:51:34 PM
400      5/2/2006 2:51:21 PM            5/2/2006 2:51:34 PM
401      5/2/2006 3:51:43 PM            5/2/2006 3:51:55 PM
402      5/2/2006 9:08:29 PM            5/3/2006 10:31:43 AM

but the results i need are:

EmailID      EDate                      Removed      FClickDate
396      5/1/2006 10:49:25 AM            5/1/2006 11:05:17 AM
397      5/2/2006 2:10:05 PM            5/2/2006 2:11:24 PM
399      5/2/2006 2:41:48 PM            5/2/2006 2:42:35 PM
400      5/2/2006 2:51:21 PM            5/2/2006 2:51:34 PM
401      5/2/2006 3:51:43 PM            5/2/2006 3:51:55 PM
402      5/2/2006 9:08:29 PM            5/3/2006 10:31:43 AM

by the way my db operates if there is an FClick for an EmailID it will be the same every time so i only need to see it one time.  i have tried everything i can think of to get the results to display like above but i can not figure it out.  does anyone know what i can do to get this to work?  i know it will work i just don't know how to get there.

You could replace SELECT with SELECT DISTINCT to get rid of duplicates.

To group them properly you would need EmailId under GROUP BY then max() on the other fields, looking at your data though you should be fine with ..

SELECT DISTINCT dbo_EmailHistory.EmailID, dbo_EmailHistory.EDate, dbo_EmailHistory.Removed, dbo_EmailProsDetail.FClickDate
FROM dbo_EmailHistory LEFT JOIN dbo_EmailProsDetail ON dbo_EmailHistory.EmailID = dbo_EmailProsDetail.EmailID
WHERE (((dbo_EmailHistory.EDate) Between [Start Date] And [Stop Date]) AND ((dbo_EmailHistory.Removed) Is Null) AND ((dbo_EmailHistory.UserID) Not In (1,3,80))) OR (((dbo_EmailHistory.Removed)="isblank"));

influenz,

thx for the quick response.  i must be brain dead casue i have used SELECT DISTINCT in a lot of queries that i have currently set up but i never though of it.  maybe i have been looking at this data too long or something.

obviously your solution worked perfectly.  thx again for the fast response.
