Default not contained in aggregate function

Hi there

hoping someone can help:

I'm getting this error returned when I try and run this sql statement:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Column 'tbl_tenders.id' is invalid in the select list because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the GROUP BY clause.

This is the statement:

SELECT t.id, t.title, t.address, t.area, t.detail, t.maplink, t.imagename, t.imagename_m, t.imagename2, t.imagename2_m, t.startdate, t.enddate, t.dateadded, MAX(b.bid) AS 'maxbid', b.biddate FROM tbl_tenders t, tbl_bid b WHERE t.IsLive = 0 AND t.id = b.tenderid AND b.customerid = 1

I'm not sure what I need to do here, why do I need a group by clause - can anyone advise?

Send a message via AIM to mat41

its insisting on this because you are asking this:

MAX(b.bid) AS ....

I'm sure if you removed this field it would not insist for GROUP BY and your query would run. Failing this you simply need to do what you have been asked:

GROUP BY t.id, t.title, t.address, t.area, t.detail, t.maplink, t.imagename, t.imagename_m......etc
