Try this:

SELECT *
FROM YourTable A
WHERE MDATE = (SELECT MAX(MDATE) FROM YourTable B
                           WHERE A.AccountNo = B.AccountNo)
0

Not sure if this is what you're looking for...

CREATE PROCEDURE myProc
     @AccountNumber int,
     @mdate datetime,
     @Rows int
AS

SET ROWCOUNT @Rows

SELECT ... FROM myTable WHERE AccountNumber = @AccountNumber AND mdate = @mdate

SET ROWCOUNT 0
GO
