What is the SQL to select first 100 records?

Currently I am using SELECT TOP 100 but this gives me records that have the same value in the descending field

Thanks

When you use a single field in your Group BY clause, and then indicate Select Top 100, you will get the top 100, plus any additional records where the value in the field you are grouping by is the same as for the 100th record.

To alleviate this, you should add another field to the group by clause.
