Using DISTINCT in a SQL query

Development expert Greg Low explains the purpose of DISTINCT and how to send a query to SQL Server from VBA.

How can I use DISTINCT in an SQL query in VBA? Please provide an example. Thanks!
I'm not sure what the limitation here that you're asking about is. DISTINCT simply limits the returned rows to avoid having duplicate entries. If you are sending a query to SQL Server from VBA, you can specify the DISTINCT modifier in a query the same way you would in a SQL query tool ie: SELECT DISTINCT SomeColumns FROM SomeTable
