SQL Select Query Issue

Hi

I have a SQL query that brings up two lines for the same invoice
How would I do a further Select on this that only shows the first date

Supplier      Ref      Total      Due      Date
boston breweries      28924      4 990.34      4 990.34      2012/12/30

please read up this article:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/Miscellaneous/A_3203-DISTINCT-vs-GROUP-BY-and-why-does-it-not-work-for-my-query.html

it will explain that you just have to clarify the rule on which row you want to show up (in your case, which "date" to choose), and formulate the sql accordingly
