help needed with Microsoft SQL Server syntax

Excuse the pseudo-code..:

select field1, field2, field3 from table1
group by field1, field2, field 3 as s1

select field1, field2, field3,field4,field5 from table1 as s2

left join s1 to s2 (on s1.field1, s1.field2, s1.field3 = s2.field1, s2.field2, s2field3)

not sure what are you trying to do.
since both s1 and s2 coming from table1

but query may look like this

SELECT 
	S1.*, S2.*
FROM 
	(SELECT DISTINCT Field1, Field2, Field3 FROM Table1) S1
	LEFT JOIN
	(SELECT Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4, Field5 FROM Table1) S2
	ON  S1.Field1 = S2.Field1
	AND S1.Field2 = S2.Field2
	AND S1.Field3 = S2.Field3

That doesn't make any sense. It's the same as selecting field1, field2, field3, field1, field2, field3, field4, field5 from table1, which is not allowed anyway without creating aliases for the columns. Perhaps you can provide some sample data and the expected results so we gain a better understanding of what you are trying to accomplish.

Yeah good point. What I should of posted was :

select field1, field2, field3 from table1
group by field1, field2, max(field 3) as s1

select field1, field2, field3,field4,field5 from table1 as s2

left join s1 to s2 (on s1.field1, s1.field2, s1.field3 = s2.field1, s2.field2, s2field3)

. Although I realise my question has now been answered in a previous post.
