Hi all,

I have a table contains 4 fields
Sample data:
ID(PK)  TransactionNum    Merchant             Cost
1          1101                      OFFICE DEPOT    $10
2          1101                       OFFICE DEPOT    $5
3          1102                       LOWES               $20
4          1103                       TGIFRIDAY         $30

I want to constructe a query to group the total for the same transaction but only list the first ID like below.

1 1101  OFFICE DEPOT   $15
3 1102  LOWES              $20
4 1103  TGIFRIDAY         $30
