Hi,  I should know this one, but have always side stepped the need to find out before..

I am doing a select, joining two tables, but I want the results to be DISTINCT by HOUSEHOLD_ID, while I still want the rest of the data to test on.

With 5 rows in the table, this:

SELECT DISTINCT * from GAMES_PLAYED GP, HOUSEHOLD H where H.HOUSEHOLD_ID=GP.HOUSEHOLD_ID AND GP.CREATED_TIMESTAMP >= '2013-05-20 16:00:00' AND GP.CREATED_TIMESTAMP < '2013-05-21 16:00:00' ORDER BY SCORE1_VALUE DESC LIMIT 50

Gives me:
15 201 32132
15 203 2322
15 204 832
2 202 736
7 200 0

But I need it to be distinct on the first value and give me:
15 201 32132
2 202 736
7 200 0

Top points for a quick answer.

Thanks,

Cris.
