ABAP CDS view with GROUP BY clause returning duplicates


I'm new to ABAP CDS views  but slowly learning by building up gradually more complex examples.

I've created the following view but it returns duplicate entries for field OPBEL, rather than one record summing the field BETRH. The only difference between the two rows returned for the Doc no. (OPBEL) = '000000510771' is field Item text (OPTXT).

I've tried various combination of key fields and have read that all fields in the SELECT list that aren't aggregated must be included in the GROUP BY clause. So, please can you advise how to best achieve this requirement?
