RE: problem with max date



fixed

If you are looking for the maximum date for each schedule, try the following
SELECT sched, max(rvyrmo) FROM savectl00 GROUP BY sched ORDER
BY sched

max(RVYRMO) = 201303

therefore, your results are correct

201303 A
201303 C
201303 D

I have a scenario where I need to pick this record with the highest YR/MO from a file.
Records are like this

RVYRMO SCHED
201301 A
201301 B
201301 C
201301 D
201303 A
201303 C
201303 D

My query doesn't pick up the record

201301 B

My query looks like this

SELECT RVYRMO , SCHED,
FROM savectl00 where RVYRMO = (select max(RVYRMO) from savectl00 )

My results are

201303 A
201303 C
201303 D


My searching seems to indicate this is how to do it, but I'm not having any luck.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Mike
