Hi all,
I am having a table say
e(empname, phone) where one emp can have more then one phone number.
To get the distinct empname from the table I can use following two queries -
1. select distinct empname from e;
2. Select empname from e group by empname;

Which one is more efficient and why?
With regards
Amit Nanote
