I have the below query:
select * from expeditetbl1 ex 
left outer join exp_dummytbl expd on ex.program=expd.pgm_codes
 ex.open_qty <>0
and vendor_code='HAL601' and po_num='41309844'
and emp_num='092'

select * from exp_dummytbl where emp_num='092' and pGM_CODES='661'

The second query has duplicates for that combination so when I do the left join in the first query its returning 2 rows.How can I modify the first query to a subquery so that the duplicates are eliminated.
