Hi,  

What code do i need to add so that...
when i perform a query from a MySQL database and run them through a repeat all...
it will not display duplicates..

e.g.
Every Record i am querying on has a year value. i.e. 2008,2009 etc
Several Records may have the same year value i.e. 2008,2008,2009,2009

I want to not display the year multiple times, only once?

Thanks!

What you can do is to SELECT DISTINCT to get your listing of years in data?  Something like this:
SELECT DISTINCT year FROM your_table;

using DISTINCT keyword after SELECT
SELECT DISTINCT [column] FROM [table_name]
if the table is too large then running DISTINCT is a big deal... there are advance solutions...
