Select first 10 distinct rows in mysql
Is there any way in MySQL to get the first 10 distinct rows of a table.
i.e. Something like...
SELECT TOP 10 distinct * FROM people WHERE names='SMITH' ORDER BY names asc
However this method doesn't actually work, because it gives the error: "Syntax Error. Missing operator in query expression distinct *"
SELECT DISTINCT * FROM people WHERE names = 'Smith' ORDER BY names LIMIT 10
SELECT * FROM people WHERE names ='SMITH' ORDER BY names asc limit 10
If you need add group by clause. If you search Smith you would have to sort on something else.
Try this SELECT DISTINCT 10 * ...
