Min Question

Jeff

my data looks like the following

111 0 01/01/2007
111 0 02/01/2007
222 0 04/01/2007
222 0 05/01/2007
555 1 06/01/2007
666 0 06/01/2007

how can i retrieve the following???

111 0 01/01/2007
222 0 04/01/2007
555 1 06/01/2007
666 0 06/01/2007

my goal is to retrive distinct cols 1 and 2, and then the earliest date in
col 3 for distinct records in cols 1 and 2???

any suggestions??? I tried different ways of using min a, but was
unsuccessful. I can get max to work which returns the latest date, but when
i switch to min, I dont get any records.

Thanks in advance.
