i have a table with these are not unique.
so, i have multiple rows of such as shown below:


I hope you got the idea of the data in the table.
I want to fetch all the rows from this table with unique
so the fetch should display data something like this


Can you give me a query for this kind of result fetching?
thanks in advance

i little mistake in my analysis:


i want to select unique with a good value of
good value means, C123.. kind of string in case values are 0 and C123..
0 in case all the values are 0.
Other than zero, the other string value will always be same.

You might be able to get what you want this way:

select tyche_id,max(summit_id) from "your table" group by tyche_id.

the group by will get you uniqueness of the tyche_ids and the aggregate function will get you some meaningful value for the summit_id, unless it's 0 in which case it will return the 0. It's a bit of a kludge, but it might work. Otherwise, you will have to use a combination of join, group by and case statements to craft the result set more precisely to your needs.

You will get the alphabetic maximum, not the numerical one.
