Adult Care - Finding out the difference between Begin Date and Ending Date

Hello,
I had previous help on a question asked and the query provided works pretty good, but still needs a little tweaking.
The issue is that I need to find out the max end date and the min end dates of a case and then do a subtraction of them, to see if there is a difference.
The initial question used the wrong dates but as you can see in the attached spreadsheet,
it shows rows for each case.
Please take a look at case '0000069470'.  I want to show on 1 row, not multiple rows:
TID_DATE_BEGIN = '12/31/2012'
TID_DATE_END = '12/17/2012'
(I hi-lited the dates on the .xls file, that I want to see for each case and also, to find the difference)
So the difference will be a 'Y', based on the attached query.  And should be a 'N' for the other 2 cases...  Right now, the other 2 cases show a 'Y' and that is not correct.
Is there something else I can do to correct this?

Attaching query and results from running the query.
Thanks.

Try this:
SELECT caseno, MAX ( tid_date_begin), MIN ( tid_date_end)
  FROM (
       -- 
       -- Your query that produces the spreadsheet data 
       -- 
      )
GROUP BY caseno
ORDER BY caseno
