Hi Sundar

I think it is not possible to delete duplicate records keeping one from the table with no primary key.
So to add an primary key (ex. id) then follow this query

Delete from Test s where id <
(Select Max(id) from Test t where s.a = t.a and
s.b = t.b and
s.c = t.c)


or you can transfer the one distinct record to another table and delete all in original table and then transfer the distinct one back.

Try this one (i am not sure)
for transferring distinct record to a table which is not exist

select distinct * into <NewTable> from <MyTable>
