MSSQL Query With SUM Function To Include Other Fields

HELLO...

I have a Table in MSSQL...call it "CustomerPurchases", that has the following fields:

CustomerNumber
FirstName
LastName
PhoneNumber
ProdutSales
ServiceSales

I need to summarize the data...BUT...I *ALSO* need to display...the "other" (non-summarized) fields in the query's output.

I created a query like the following:

Select CustomerNumber, sum(ProductSales), sum(ServiceSales)
from CustomerPurchases
group by CustomerNumber

That works, certainly, but I need to display:
   FirstName
   LastName
   PhoneNumber
...on the SAME OUTPUT.  

When I attempt to add those (3) other fields, I get that "...is invalid in the select list because it is not contained in either an aggregate function..." error.  What is the correct syntax/method to use here?

Please help!...much appreciated!...Mark

Thank you both, IrogSinta, and Pthepebble, for responding.  When I do that, I get a bunch of NULLS fed back, which I know are not true.  Should I be looking to do a querry...and then a subquery with a join, perhaps?  Thoughts?

Thanks!...Mark

Would that be because some of your PhoneNumbers are null for the same customer in this CustomerPurchases table?  If so, you probably should do a join to a Customers table to get the FirstName, LastName, and PhoneNumber fields.  Something like this:

SELECT P.CustomerNumber, C.FirstName, C.LastName, C.PhoneNumber, Sum(P.ProductSales) AS SumOfProductSales, Sum(P.ServiceSales) AS SumOfServiceSales
FROM CustomerPurchases As P INNER JOIN Customers As C ON P.CustomerNumber = C.CustomerNumber
GROUP BY P.CustomerNumber, C.FirstName, C.LastName, C.PhoneNumber

Try this and let me know

SELECT CustomerNumber, MAX(FirstName) FirstName, MAX(LastName) LastName, MAX(PhoneNumber) PhoneNumber, Sum(ProductSales) AS SumOfProductSales, Sum(ServiceSales) AS SumOfServiceSales
FROM CustomerPurchases 
GROUP BY CustomerNumber

select CustomerNumber, FirstName, LastName, PhoneNumber,
sum(ProductSales) over (partition by Customer order by CustomerNumber) as sum_prod_sales,
sum(ServiceSales) over (partition by Customer order by CustomerNumber) as sum_serv_sales
from CustomerPurchases;
