I think you would do it like this:

SELECT Max(price1) AS Max1, Max(price2) AS Max2 , Max(price3) AS Max3 FROM table1

Hello rgvn,

Idon't know whether you can use iif in ASP but in a standard Jet query you would be able to do:

select iif(price1>=price2 and price1>=price3, price1, iif(price2>=price1 and price2>=price3, price2,price3)) from....

Sorry, I though you were trying to get the max of each field. If you want the max between the three then Pete's solution is the right way to go.
