Table name = Contacts.
Table attributes = first_name,last_name,email_address,other_email,address,phone,notes.

I want to retrieve without repetition(DISTINCT) first_name and address. But, when retrieving these 2 data, i want all the other data(notes,last_name,etc..) associated to this the DISTINCT data to show.

Is there any SQL data for this kind of situation?

Give some example data and the result you want.

For eg, my database table is this.

First_name Last_name TelphoneNo Email_addr HomeAddr

I want to use SQL to Select All DISTINCT First_name and E-mail. While, all my Distinct results comes out, i want my address,telphoneNo,last_Name to come out too.

Is it possible to achive it???

I think you cannot use DISTINCT. But you can use GROUP BY command because you want to display Address, telphoneNo and last_Name. And you must determine which row will be displayed if there are more than 1 double row in First_Name and E-Mail.
