Dmax in cfquery not working

works in access but when I insert in cfquery I get an error of too few parameters

<cfquery name="q_LatestDate" datasource="#application.DS#" username="#application.dbuser#" password="#application.dbpass#">
SELECT tblDailyRates.CurrencyRateDate AS aaa
FROM tblDailyRates
WHERE (((tblDailyRates.CurrencyRateDate)=DMax("CurrencyRateDate","tblDailyRates")));

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

how about

select top 1 tblDailyRates.CurrencyRateDate AS aaa
FROM tblDailyRates
Order By tblDailyRates.CurrencyRateDate Desc, tblDailyRates.tblDailyRates Desc
major typo
Order By tblDailyRates.CurrencyRateDate Desc

What's with the brackets, try this

WHERE tblDailyRates.CurrencyRateDate = DMax("CurrencyRateDate","tblDailyRates");

or without the ;

WHERE tblDailyRates.CurrencyRateDate = DMax("CurrencyRateDate","tblDailyRates")

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

found it. it seems access driver doesn't support the Dmax function

the workaround is simply to use Max instead of Dmax

SELECT max(tblDailyRates.CurrencyRateDate) AS aaa
FROM tblDailyRates

Even though I didn't post correct answer access does recognize dMax()

and I refer to the opening post on this question
"works in access but when I insert in cfquery I get an error of too few parameters"

you're right acces does accept dmax (I use it quite often). I pointed out that the 'driver' used in CF doesn't suport dmax
