summary aggregate information from a second table

P: n/a
Hi,

I have two tables and I want to get summary information from the second table for each row of the first table, I can see two ways to do this one is with the SQL below but since the first table is very big the group by takes along time and there is no need since it is unique. The second way is witha function which loops through each row in the first table and does the aggregate function for that row. Does anyone know of a way to do this with SQL or will I have to use a function?

Thanks in advance
Matthew
