AM using MySQL 5.7.13 on my windows PC with WAMP Server

Here my Problem is While executing this query

FROM `tbl_customer_pod_uploads`
WHERE `load_id` = '78' AND
      `status` = 'Active'
GROUP BY `proof_type`

Am getting always error like this

Expression #1 of SELECT list is not in GROUP BY clause and contains nonaggregated column '' which is not functionally dependent on columns in GROUP BY clause; this is incompatible with sql_mode=only_full_group_by

Can you please tell me the best solution...

I need Result like

| id | user_id | load_id | bill_id | latitude | langitude | proof_type | document_type | file_name    | is_private | status | createdon           | updatedon           |
|  1 |       1 | 78      | 1       | 21.1212  | 21.5454   |          1 |             1 | id_Card.docx |          0 | Active | 2017-01-27 11:30:11 | 2017-01-27 11:30:14 |




Expression #1 of SELECT list is not in GROUP BY clause and contains nonaggregated column '' which is not functionally dependent on columns in GROUP BY clause; this is incompatible with sql_mode=only_full_group_by

will be simply solved by changing the sql mode in MySQL by this command,


This too works for me.. I used this, because in my project there are many Queries like this so I just changed this sql mode to only_full_group_by

Thank You... :-)

I would just add group_id to the GROUP BY.

When SELECTing a column that is not part of the GROUP BY there could be multiple values for that column within the groups, but there will only be space for a single value in the results. So, the database usually needs to be told exactly how to make those multiple values into one value. Commonly, this is done with an aggregate function like COUNT(), SUM(), MAX() etc... I say usually because most other popular database systems insist on this. However, in MySQL prior to version 5.7 the default behaviour has been more forgiving because it will not complain and then arbitrarily choose any value! It also has an ANY_VALUE() function that could be used as another solution to this question if you really needed the same behaviour as before. This flexibility comes at a cost because it is non-deterministic, so I would not recommend it unless you have a very good reason for needing it. MySQL are now turning on the only_full_group_by setting by default for good reasons, so it's best to get used to it and make your queries comply with it.

So why my simple answer above? I've made a couple of assumptions:

1) the group_id is unique. Seems reasonable, it is an 'ID' after all.

2) the group_name is also unique. This may not be such a reasonable assumption. If this is not the case and you have some duplicate group_names and you then follow my advice to add group_id to the GROUP BY, you may find that you now get more results than before because the groups with the same name will now have separate rows in the results. To me, this would be better than having these duplicate groups hidden because the database has quietly selected a value arbitrarily!

It's also good practice to qualify all the columns with their table name or alias when there's more than one table involved...

  g.group_id AS 'value', 
  g.group_name AS 'text' 
FROM mod_users_groups g
LEFT JOIN mod_users_data d ON g.group_id = d.group_id 
WHERE = 1 
  AND g.department_id = 1 
  AND g.manage_work_orders = 1 
  AND g.group_name != 'root' 
  AND g.group_name != 'superuser' 
HAVING COUNT(d.user_id) > 0 
ORDER BY g.group_name

I had a struggle getting this to work i've tested it and it's working on lamp server mysql version 5.12

So, steps to success:

  1. sudo vim /etc/mysql/conf.d/mysql.cnf
  2. Scroll to the bottom of file Copy and paste


to the bottom of the file

  1. save and exit input mode
  2. sudo service mysql restart to restart MySQL.

In your select you have an aggregate function sum and a set of column name, the error tell you that you have not specified the correct list of column name in group by clause . could be you should add more columns name in group by probably related to the profile_details, opportunity_conditions table

You have also ,(,(, (opportunity.mantaghe), why the () if you need sum you must add sum to all column

sum(, sum(,


otherwise if thes are normal columns you should use the normal sintax without (),,opportunity.mantaghe,

I have tried to rewrite a possible query

FROM `opportunity` 
INNER JOIN `profile_details` ON `opportunity`.`user_id`= `profile_details`.`user_id` 7
INNER JOIN `opportunity_conditions` ON `opportunity`.`id`=`opportunity_conditions`.`opportunity_id` 
GROUP BY`opportunity`.`id`,   `profile_details`.`user_id`,``,  
ORDER BY `opportunity`.`id` DESC

with group by on the essential column name (i hope)

GROUP BY`opportunity`.`id`,   `profile_details`.`user_id`,``,

First of all, please read Group by clause in mySQL and postgreSQL, why the error in postgreSQL?

It is not SQL Standard behaviour.

12.16.3 MySQL Handling of GROUP BY

To disable the MySQL GROUP BY extension and enable standard SQL behavior, enable the ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY SQL mode. In this case, columns not named in the GROUP BY clause cannot be used in the select list or HAVING clause unless enclosed in an aggregate function.

It looks like on second server you have acitivated ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY mode.

SELECT @@sql_mode;

You could simulate this behaviour on your MySQL 5.5:


FROM tab
-- tab.col2' isn't in GROUP BY


From MySQL 5.7:

Implementation of the ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY SQL mode has been made more sophisticated, to no longer reject deterministic queries that previously were rejected. In consequence, ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY is now enabled by default, to prohibit nondeterministic queries containing expressions not guaranteed to be uniquely determined within a group.
