I'm not sure the best way to ask, but need what I am assuming may be a simple solution.

I have queried by database to return all values by 'groupID' that have a value of '0'.

There are several items returned that are the same 'groupID'.

I only need it to show those groups once, as the name will be a link to a detail page to return each line for that group.

Below is what i have tried, there are 9 records on my test server with a value of '0' but it duplicates the groups currently into 5 records.

sorry, it's Dreamweaver code.

mysql_select_db($database_con_portal_test, $con_portal_test);
$query_rs_console = "SELECT tblgroup.grpID, tblgroup.grpName, tblinfo1.groupID, tblinfo1.trnsProcessed, tblinfo1.transID FROM tblgroup, tblinfo1 WHERE tblinfo1.trnsProcessed = '0' AND tblgroup.grpID = tblinfo1.groupID";
$rs_console = mysql_query($query_rs_console, $con_portal_test) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rs_console = mysql_fetch_assoc($rs_console);
$totalRows_rs_console = mysql_num_rows($rs_console);

 <?php
// initialize variables
$previous = '';
$first = true;
do {
  // if not the same value as $previous
  if ($row_rs_console['grpName'] != $previous) {
  	
    // if not the first time, close the nested list
    
    // display the category
    echo $row_rs_console['grpName'] . $row_rs_console['trnsID'] . '<br />';
   
    // store the current value for comparison next time
    $previous = $row_rs_console['grpName'];
	$first = false;
  }
 
  // it's no longer the first time

  } while ($row_rs_console = mysql_fetch_assoc($rs_console)); ?>

Try adding this to the end of your query:

GROUP BY tblgroup.grpID
0
