How do I write a SQL statement to pick up the distinct record based on ClientID
For example, this is my dataset,
ClientID      code
1227      5200      
1234      5500      
1235      5100      
1235      5600      
1235      5700      
1236      5500      
1237      5200      
1238      5500    

I would like to get the result
1227      5200      
1234      5500      
1235      5100      
1236      5500      
1237      5200      
1238      5500

Try this instead.

SELECT ClientID, MIN( code )
FROM tablename
GROUP BY ClientID
ORDER BY ClientID ASC

Where there are many rows for that ClientID, do you want to see the lowest Code?
