My attached code produces output as follows below
BusType       DealID
LT                  8001
LT                  8001
LT                  8001
SS                 1600
SS                 1600
SS                 1600

How do I modify my original select statement so I get the output below?
I'd rather not use a temp table
BusType       DealID
LT                  8001
SS                 1600

Declare @OrdTranID int
Set @OrdTranID = 9001

Select	Left(afsSource,2) as busType,
		SubString(afsSource,4,4) as DealID	
from	proc_cfa.dbo.P_AvailableForSale
where	afsTransAction = @OrdTranID

this should do:
Declare @OrdTranID int
Set @OrdTranID = 9001

Select  Left(afsSource,2) as busType,
                SubString(afsSource,4,4) as DealID      
from    proc_cfa.dbo.P_AvailableForSale
where   afsTransAction = @OrdTranID
group by Left(afsSource,2), SubString(afsSource,4,4)
