Lets say the table (database) contains these fields

id
time_stamp
data_field_1
data_field_2
data_field_3

I could not make the example get the last record, that is data_field_1, data_field_2, data_field_3 for the most recent record for each id.

Any thoughts?

Is there a simple way to select the last record in a series? Say the most
recent record of a set using a timestamp. For example, a data base record with id time_stamp data fields In RPG one could create a logical file, or OPNQRYF with keys id time_stamp To get the last record for each id one could set id to *LOVAL repeat until end of file SETGT READPE Can you do this with SQL (hence with Java) ... or should you drop back to relative record access with JT400?
