In sql server I have the following table:
ID                 Name
aaa             desc of aaa
bbb             desc1 of bbb
bbb            desc2 of bbb
ccc            desc of ccc
I want to create a new table or a query that for each ID will show the first Name that exist.
How do I do it?
Thankyou
Anat

select ID,(select top 1 from table as t where t.ID=table.ID) as name
from table
group by ID

replace table with your table name
