I have inherited a database with a table that contains the following data.

Number	Name	        Image	              
2	Deck Two	/images/626_deck2.gif
2	Deck Two	/images/626_deck2in.gif	
3	Deck Three	/images/626_deck3.gif
3	Deck Three	/images/626_deck3in.gif	

I want to select one entry for each Number. But because the Image field is unique select distinct doesn't seem to work.

Can anyone advise how I can select only one entry for each number.

SELECT Number,NAME, IMAGE FROM
(
	SELECT *,
		ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY Number,NAME ORDER BY IMAGE) AS RN
	FROM 
		YourTable
)s WHERE RN=1;
