Need to create a view.  I have a payhistory file and need to pull the invoices and corresponding custnums from it.  Problem is the the payhistory files has multiple transactions on each invoice# so I'm getting back much replication of invoice#s, and custnum, correct data but I want and need only 1 of each not the replication to use the view to my advantage...

SELECT     TOP 100 PERCENT Invoice, customer
FROM         dbo.payhistory
WHERE     (Invoice IS NOT NULL AND Invoice <> 1)
ORDER BY Invoice

RE: eliminate dups

Thanks for the tip.  The server through in the header code.  I'm winging it on the sql side, writing crystal reports and need a special view.  

The question is half the answer.  Thanks again for the link, I'll go there in the future.
