help with query

(OP)
i have a set of data

product, hour, sales
col1,1,234
col1,1,345
col2,1,456
col2,1,345
col1,2,342
col1,2,6543
col2,2,23
col2,2,634

What I need

col1, 1, 234, 345

what I am getting

col1, 1, 234, 234
col1, 1, 345, 345


select
    distinct (hour),
    product,
    max(sales),
    min(sales)
from
    table
group by
    hour,
    product,
    sale


I would have thought that the above would give my about 2000 rows but instead it gives me every row. How do I go about pulling distinct columns.



 

RE: help with query

(OP)
That worked.

Why on earth does informix consider a distinct to mean everything in the select? This to me seems fairly ill-logical.
