I have a query that is returning the following data.  

Broward County     07DB-3V-11-16-01-Z 08   596000531    Buyouts    Null          Null
Broward County     07DB-3V-11-16-01-Z 08   596000531    Null          Null          Buyouts

I would like to group it up to just show one line that looks like :

Broward County     07DB-3V-11-16-01-Z 08   596000531    Buyouts     Null     Buyouts

Thanks in advance.

Here you can use Group By clause in SQL to combine result, you can apply group by on selected columns

Grouping doesn't work for me in this scenario, at least not that I can tell.  Do you have a query in mind?

I resolved it, I inserted the results into a Temp table then joined on itself.

SELECT name, id1, id2, MAX(buyout1) AS buyout1, MAX(buyout2) AS buyout2, MAX(buyout3)  AS buyout3
FROM ...
GROUP BY name, id1, id2


Corresponds to sample data like this:
name = Broward County
id1 = 07DB-3V-11-16-01-Z 08
id2 = 596000531
buyout1 = Buyouts
buyout2 = Null
buyout3 = Null
...
buyout1 = Null
buyout2 = Null
buyout3 = Buyouts
