Hi Andy, If no-one manages to find a solution for you right away, could you please supply some pseudo-data from the tables you are working with. Also, which db server application and version are you working with? I'm sure a solution can be found, but I for one would be closer to helping you find it if I had a better idea of the structure of the tables involved and the data they contain.
