A couple comments -

I couldn't tell if the OP wanted only the last row or to start with it - in either case, DESC is the thing to use, as all the replies have suggested.
A couple replies have offered what looks like 2 solutions - DESC LIMIT 1 --or-- DESC FETCH FIRST 1 ROW -- they mean the same thing. According to the SQL Reference, LIMIT and OFFSET were added in October 2015. Here is an interesting comment on this -
The following are supported for compatibility with SQL used by other database products. These alternatives are non-standard. The OFFSET clause and the LIMIT clause can only be specified in the outermost fullselect of a query.

I also saw a comment that OFFSET can't be used in interactive SQL, didn't see anything about that restriction for LIMIT.

You can try adding ORDER BY yaudsd.theTimeStampCol DESC FETCH FIRST 1 ROW
ONLY before the end of the query.

I need to get the last record from my inner join table, not the first one.
This query gets the first row from yAudSd. The table has a timestamp. Can I
order the join somehow or do I need to create an index?

create table wrkart.PTIR32501 as (
select drdid#,RCDCUID as userid,date(drstamp) as myDate,sdControl# as
control#,drshipper as shipper, sdPieces
from drpshp00
inner join whssd00 on drdid#=sddid#
inner join yaudsd on audfid = sddid#
where drstamp >= '2022-10-26-00.00.00'
and audfnm = 'UPS'
and audds like 'UPS label printed Tracking:%'
with data;
