Hello all,
Please find below the query.How should I modify the query to include a group by clause on "groupby NDC"
Thanks.

 select a.PatName as Patient,a.DrugLabelName as medication,a.dispenseDt as DispensedDate, a.daysSupply, a.PatID, a.NDC, a.RxNo,
   a.RoNo,d.Sig
   from (select * from Rx..HRxs union all select * from FwArchive..HRxs)
   as a
   left join HRxDirections as d on a.PatID = d.PatID and a.FacID = d.FacID and a.RxNo = d.RxNo and a.RoNo = d.RoNo and a.Posted =d.Posted
   left outer join Pat..Patients as b on a.PatID = b.PatID and a.FacID = b.FacID
   left outer join Fac..NursingStations as c on b.NsID = c.NsID and a.FacID = c.FacID
    where a.FacId = '74' and a.DispenseDt >= '07/01/2012'  and a.DispenseDt <= '01/09/2013'  and a.PatId = '22'
     and TransType in ('P', 'R', 'U', 'Q', 'B') order by  a.DrugLabelName,a.DispenseDt

You can't group by just one column of the SELECT, unless you have agregate functions for the rest of the columns (like if you were grouping by a patient name and putting sums of columns on order records or something). It sounds like you just want to sort the data by NDC and if that is the case change the "order by" line to "order by a.NDC, a.DrugLabelName, a.DispenseDt".

Also you may wish to put NDC at the start of the SELECT just so it makes more sense. But doesn't have to be.

Can you post some sample data and desired output?  What is your desired aggregate for the grouping?

please read this article, it explaines the "issues" around the GROUP BY / DISTINCT and how to "solve" them:
