but the above query will give 'not a group by expression error' because all the fields you are selecting are not in the group by list.

so try the below :

Sorry I did not check your initial query, I just checked the on with the columns in comments. You forgot a comma in your SELECT list.

So fixing the missing comma in SELECT, the commas instead of ANDs in WHERE and the missing columns in GROUP BY, your query should be:
