Try this:

SELECT groupname, firstname, lastname...
FROM tbl_contact
WHERE groupname ='a' OR groupname ='b' OR groupname ='c'
ORDER BY groupname, lastname, firstname

In the Where clause, the AND operators should be OR operators.

You're right! Thanks Mike ;)

Please try the following

SELECT G.GroupName
JOIN Contact C ON G.Group_ID = C.Group_ID
ORDER BY G.GroupName
