Advanced Query Help (DISTINCT)

P: 12

I am attempting to query a table and I am not exactly sure how to accomplish this. In my table I have three columns: ID, source, target.

[ID] [source] [target]
1 pa ny
2 pa ca
3 pa pa
4 la pa
5 la ca

How would I write or find help on writing a query that returned only where pa is in the source only, target only, or both (the first 4 IDs)? ID#3 should not occur twice.

I'm afraid this (as specified) is probably more straightforward than you anticipated.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. SELECT *
  2. FROM [YourTable]
  3. WHERE (([Source]='pa') OR ([Target]='pa'))
