I have a simple query that joins six tables to retrieve the desired data on PersonID.  I need to include Notes from a separate Notes table.  I only want the notes to appear once in the result set, how can I achieve that?  In the data, I join the Notes table and Table1 on PersonID.  I only want to show Note1 in the data set below on row 1 IF the Notes are the same, as in the example.  If the Notes are different, for example where it is Note2, then I want to display it in my query.   The sample of data is below:
PersonID     Name     Address     Phone     Email    AcctNumber     SomeDate     EndDate    ExpensePayment     Notes
12345          Joe           123 Yam    55555 123999          02/02/2017    03/04/2017    27.99                     Note1
12345          Joe            123 Yam   55555  12399           02/02/2017    05/23/2017    15.23                     Note1
12345          Joe            123 Yam   55555   12399          04/03/2017    04/04/2017     5.99                      Note2
