Please help me with a sql query. I have a view with couple of joined tables which displays the results as
Name, Top,  Bottom and some other fields. The results looks like
AA  0      100
AA  100    175
AA   150   200
Now i need only one record for the above results as AA  0  200. Min of Top and Max of Bottom for each name.

Thanks

if angelIII solution doesn't work, try:
select distinct name
, (select min(YourFieldName) from YourTable where Name = A.Name)
, (select max(YourOtherFieldName) from YourTable where Name = A.Name)
from YourTable AS A
