select distinct one column and pick just one occurence out of the second one

I have the below data:

id1 id2 other
1 a p
1 b q
2 c q
2 d q
2 e q

I want to select distinct id1. For id2, I just want the first occurrence – I don’t care about the rest like this:

id1 id2
1 a
2 c

Thanks!

>Solution :

Should be fairly simple:

select id1, min(id2) as id2
from that_table
group by id1
