I have a query that is showing multiple results.  I would like to see the minimum sequence number. .  .

SELECT     WORKORDER_BASE_ID, WORKORDER_LOT_ID, WORKORDER_SPLIT_ID, MIN(SEQUENCE_NO)
FROM         OPERATION
GROUP BY WORKORDER_TYPE, WORKORDER_BASE_ID, WORKORDER_LOT_ID, WORKORDER_SPLIT_ID, STATUS, SEQUENCE_NO
HAVING      (WORKORDER_TYPE = 'W') AND (STATUS = 'R')
ORDER BY WORKORDER_BASE_ID

This is my table

WORKORDER_BASE_ID, WORKORDER_LOT_ID, WORKORDER_SPLIT_ID, SEQUENCE_NO
100, 1, 1, 10, C
100, 1, 1, 20, R
100, 1, 1, 30, R
100, 1, 1, 40, R

I would like to see this, please. . .but I'm missing something

WORKORDER_BASE_ID, WORKORDER_LOT_ID, WORKORDER_SPLIT_ID, SEQUENCE_NO
100, 1, 1, 20, R

My query results are this. . .
WORKORDER_BASE_ID, WORKORDER_LOT_ID, WORKORDER_SPLIT_ID, SEQUENCE_NO
100, 1, 1, 20, R
100, 1, 1, 30, R
100, 1, 1, 40, R

TIA!

>HAVING      (WORKORDER_TYPE = 'W') AND (STATUS = 'R')
For starters, HAVING is essentially a WHERE clause on an aggregate such as SUM, COUNT, MIN, etc., so what you have here should be in a WHERE clause.

SQL Server GROUP BY Solutions has a couple of demos that would be a good read.

Also, the GROUP BY clause should contain all columns in the SELECT that aren't part of an aggregate, such as BASE, LOT, and SPLIT, so what's the deal-i-o with having TYPE and STATUS columns in the GROUP BY clause?

You are also grouping by SEQUENCE_NO, although that is in your MIN aggregate. You need to remove SEQUENCE_NO from the GROUP BY. As Jim says, GROUP BY should contain the columns in the SELECT  that aren't part of an aggregate.

Where throws back a SQL error . .

SWEATY - FEET - WILL - GIVE - HORRIBLE - ODORS

SELECT - FROM - WHERE - GROUP BY - HAVING - ORDER BY

Looking at your query, the WHERE needs to be before the GROUP BY.

Good luck getting that out of your head.
