T-SQL Extracting Distinct Records

Hello:

Below is my T-SQL query and attached are the results of running the query.  Until I added the last column, DSCRIPTN, I only received four rows of data.  Four, indeed, is the correct number.  I'm surprised that adding just one new column from the same table as other columns caused this.
 
Unfortunately, I do need the data from the DSCRIPTN column as well.  

I tried using the "DISTINCT" keyword.  But, that did not solve the problem.

How do I allow for this last column but have the correct number of rows returned, at the same time?

Thanks!

You have no aggregate-functions but you have a group-by clause... I would eliminate the group-by and optionally add distict to the select-clause.

Hi John_Vidmar:

I get the same result.

INNER JOIN GL20000 ON
 AAG30000.JRNENTRY = GL20000.JRNENTRY

The above statement does not uniquely identify a GL20000.DSCRIPTN for a GL20000.JRNENTRY... would you be able to add additional filters to the on-clause against AAG30000 (or another table) ?

Thanks, John_Vidmar!

You led me down the right path!  I simply took the phrase "GL20000.DSCRIPTN" and made it "GL20000_1.DSCRIPN".  To do so, I added the following clause:

 INNER JOIN GL20000 AS GL20000_1
 ON AAG30001.ACTINDX = GL20000_1.ACTINDX

Thanks, Again!
