Vikram Doogar D011
Anil Pargal, Pradeep Rawat D011
Sunil Poddar D011

I need a query which will return me only the distinct names i.e each name will appear only once in a row and one row will contain only one name which means that distinct rows for distinct rows.

the repeations of the names separated by "," has to be remeoved.

I need only one column Member to be returned by the query.

Hope this can be done?
Thanks in advance.

I gave you the code to do this type of operation in your last posting for distinct column values. You can use the same type of code to do this.

You should also consider normalizing your data.
