wouldn't that be:

select date, time name from mytable where number = 123 
order by date desc, time ASCEND FETCH first row only

For min date, time??

I have a table with 4 columns number, name, date,
time, it is not unique so can have multiple entries
for one name at different date and time.
I need to find out the first instance of name for that
number in this table, or get the name with minimum
date and time
i can do 
select min(date), min(time) from mytable where
this will give me the min date and time , but how can
i get the name also,
for example
select min(date), min(time), name from mytable
wont work
