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:
