I have a query to look through a table and bring back the top 30; Telephone number, Destination, Number of Calls, and Total Cost of the calls.  This works fine on one table but another table (same apart from free call records are ommited) it brings back duplicate rows for telephone numbers (different counts).  Also the counts added together do not equal the actual number of calls.

SQL query below:

SELECT TOP 30 CDR_nf.Telno, CDR_nf.Destination, Count(CDR_nf.TelNo) AS CountOfTelNo, Sum(CDR_nf.cost) AS SumofCost
FROM TelNumbers INNER JOIN CDR_nf ON TelNumbers.Number = CDR_nf.CalledFrom
GROUP BY CDR_nf.Telno, CDR_nf.Destination, CDR_nf.cost
ORDER BY Count(CDR_nf.TelNo) DESC;

I cannot see what I have done wrong here and any hel would be appreciated.

Attached is outut of the SQL (I have blocked out the first part of the telephone numbers and highlighted some duplicates. Screenshot of SQL output

Why are you using

CDR_nf.cost

in the GROUP BY clause? You wo't need it there, as you are using an aggregate on this column.
