Oracle query using DISTINCT

100 Views
Last Modified: 2016-01-20
Hello expert,

Using the query copied herewith below yields 4758 rows

Running a similar query with
Select DISITNCT  PAYER_ID  
FROM CCM.CCM_COMPONENT_PRICING
  where last_update_user = 1

yields 202 rows.

The 202 rows is needed but with the other fields
resultant  from the longer query.

Tried creating a join with short table against the long table
and tried listing all 202 PAYER_IDs in an 'IN' statement
but both grab all of the PAYER IDs

Is there someway to mimic the return of the DISTINCT
query but return the other fields also?

Thanks
