SQL help

Hi experts,

I have one table called results:

results.xls

I have another table and it is called ship_info_xml:

ship-info-xml.xls

I’m writing the following sql statement:

select
results.test_id, results.LEFT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC, results.RIGHT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC, results.COMPR_FLD_NAME, ship_info_xml.scnro_id, ship_info_xml.trkng_nbr, ship_info_xml.A, ship_info_xml.B, ship_info_xml.C
from results join ship_info_xml
on results.LEFT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC = ship_info_xml.trkng_nbr
order by results.test_id;

I've tried to use several different joins but I am getting these same results which causes me duplicates that I cannot seem to get rid of:

query-results.xls

This is the results I would like to see but I am not sure how to accomplish this:

Results-I-would-like-to-see.xls

I have made this hopefully easy to process but I need to know how to code this so it will work properly for me, so I need your help.

Thank you.

Have you tried a "group by" clause

select
results.test_id, results.LEFT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC, results.RIGHT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC, results.COMPR_FLD_NAME, ship_info_xml.scnro_id, ship_info_xml.trkng_nbr, ship_info_xml.A, ship_info_xml.B, ship_info_xml.C
from results join
ship_info_xml
on results.LEFT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC = ship_info_xml.trkng_nbr
group by
results.test_id, results.LEFT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC, results.RIGHT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC, results.COMPR_FLD_NAME, ship_info_xml.scnro_id, ship_info_xml.trkng_nbr, ship_info_xml.A, ship_info_xml.B, ship_info_xml.C
order by results.test_id;

Try distinct -
select distinct
results.test_id, results.LEFT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC, results.RIGHT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC, results.COMPR_FLD_NAME, ship_info_xml.scnro_id, ship_info_xml.trkng_nbr, ship_info_xml.A, ship_info_xml.B, ship_info_xml.C
from results join
ship_info_xml
on results.LEFT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC = ship_info_xml.trkng_nbr
group by
results.test_id, results.LEFT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC, results.RIGHT_DESCR_VALUE_DESC, results.COMPR_FLD_NAME, ship_info_xml.scnro_id, ship_info_xml.trkng_nbr, ship_info_xml.A, ship_info_xml.B, ship_info_xml.C
order by results.test_id;
