Hi Gang, I have a table with (at least) three columns; Region - North America, Europe, Asia Process completion date - (completed program #6 at) 12/17/00 3:45:00am Data "as of" date - (data for) 12/16/00 12:00:00am (The table has - oh - let's say 300,000 records in it. It is a "processing history" table.) What I'd really really like is to return 3 records - one showing me the maximum "as of' date for each region. This should be easy, I'm hanging my head, I'm just not getting it! TIA, Ron L.
