Thanks. I'm still trying to get a handle on the GROUP BY command. It's still a
little bit like magic to me. And in the manual, they don't really show how to
use it like the way I wanted to use it.

I'm trying to write a select statement similar to this:

yet shows all 11 columns of the selected rows rather than just the
The only way I know how to show all the columns is to use SELECT *, or to
list all the columns manually like SELECT id, type, class, ... etc.
But when I tried doing this:
SELECT DISTINCT type, id, staff_member, class, manufacturer, model,
description, picture, created, modified, published FROM equipment WHERE
class = microphones;
I just got the exact same answer as if i would have done this:
SELECT * FROM equipment WHERE class = microphones;
so it didn't help.
Can anyone offer a hint?
