Access -- Filter out duplicates

Access 2010 - Here is what I am doing ---

Fields -
A  -- Person ID
B -- Location
C -- Date
D -- Person seen
E -- Items bought

Table contains 100,000 records.  First I created a query to filter on location.  Dropped results to 1,800.  Problem I am having is that even though I only included columns A, B, C and D I am getting duplicate entries based on column E.

What I would like to do is only see each person ID once per day. What do I need to do in order to accomplish this feat?

Figured it out and then found you had posted the correct answer.

Add the Totals button to your query design and it removes duplicates.

It will add the row "Total:" to your query design and each item will show "Group By"

Thank you!
