Hi there,

I have the code below - when I run it it does not give me a DISTINCT list of 'title', however if i take away col_id_6 then it works,

Any ideas?

SELECT DISTINCT exp_channel_titles.title, exp_matrix_data.col_id_5
FROM exp_channel_titles
LEFT JOIN exp_channel_data ON exp_channel_titles.entry_id = exp_channel_data.entry_id 
LEFT JOIN exp_relationships ON exp_channel_data.entry_id = exp_relationships.rel_child_id
LEFT JOIN exp_relationships AS exp_rel ON exp_rel.rel_child_id = exp_relationships.rel_parent_id
LEFT JOIN exp_matrix_data ON exp_rel.rel_parent_id = exp_matrix_data.entry_id
WHERE exp_channel_data.channel_id = 1 AND exp_matrix_data.col_id_5 IS NOT NULL
ORDER BY exp_matrix_data.col_id_5 ASC
LIMIT 0, 10
