There is a group of rows which have the losscode and service odom. The contractnumber and service odometer are used to group the rows.

Please, may you help me to find the way to select only the row group which have the slosscode='REVSTD'?

enter image description here

  • What does grouping mean if you only want one row? The following returns the row: SELECT sContractNumber, sLossCode, iServiceOdom WHERE sLossCode='REVSTD'

I assume you want all rows of the group(s) where at least one row of the group has sLossCode = 'REVSTD'. In this case, you don't need GROUP BY. You can use either a self join (but that would only work under certain UNIQUE constraint requirements) or an EXISTS subquery:

SELECT s.sContractNumber, s.sLossCode, s.iServiceOdom
FROM service_table AS s
      ( SELECT 1
        FROM service_table AS q
        WHERE q.sLossCode = 'REVSTD'
          AND q.sContractNumber = s.sContractNumber
          AND q.iServiceOdom = s.iServiceOdom
      ) ;
