Have a database table with various tasks and each has a time against it that it should take, some tasks have the same time. I now need to display these times in a drop down list but only want to display each time once, how can I do this?
Try something like this substituting your table and field names:
count(table.timefield) AS NumberOf
NumberOf > 1
This should give you only times where there is more than on row and the number of rows.
After I posted I realised I could alter the stored proc and use DISTINCT, hopefully this works. Thank you though, if DISTINCT doesn't work I'll try your way :)
Distinct will work perfectly. I read your request as wanting only times where ther were duplicates. Also look at group by for some options.
