select distinct * --- possible??

Hello everyone,

i have a table with 300 columns (imported from a text file). Is it possible to write a "select distinct * from tablename" statement. it would be tedious to write 300 column names for DISTINCT...so will DISTINCT * work here??? if not what else could be the best way to select distinct records? Thanks.
