Hi there,

hope I can explain my problem clearly. Okay, I will try..
I have created a dataobject with data sets like this:

1. data set: name1 - adress1 - town1
2. data set: name2 - adress2 - town1
3. data set: name3 - adress3 - town2
4. data set: name4 - adress4 - town2
3. data set: name5 - adress5 - town3

You can see that different people are living in different towns.

Now I would like to know in which different towns the people are living.

The desired result should be: town1, town2 and town3

Any ideas? Thanks everybody for support,

If you start with a GROUP BY sql statement:

$sql = singleton('SomeObject')->buildSQL(); 
$sql->select[] = "town"; 
$result = $sql->groupby("town")->execute();

And then pass the result into a dataobject you can use:

$groupObject = singleton('SomeObject')->buildDataObjectSet($result);

Just return $groupObject and you can use it in your template.
