Sir, I have below query:


select       Transno,
      CargoType,
      CntrSize,
      CntrType,
      Destination,
      amount,  
      SD=Max(startingDate),
      ED=EndingDate
from MTImpAgentRateDet
where transno='008'
group by transno,
      cargotype,
      CntrSize,
      CntrType,
      Destination,
      amount
left outer join MTImpAgentCost b on a.sn=b.sn
where a.transno='008'

Result
--------

I want to show to user only the following to Rows:

008      General      20'      DC      Kabul      2000      2005-12-13 00:00:00.000      2006-09-30 00:00:00.000

select      Transno,      CargoType,      CntrSize,      CntrType,      Destination,      amount,  startingDate, EndingDate
from MTImpAgentRateDet a
where transno='008'
group by transno,     cargotype,     CntrSize,     CntrType,      Destination,      amount
where transno='008'
where startingdate = (select max(startingdate) from MTImpAgentRateDet  where a.Transno = Transno and a.CargoType = CargoType and a.CntrSize = CntrSize and a.CntrType = CntrType and a.Destination = Destination)

select      Transno,      CargoType,      CntrSize,      CntrType,      Destination,      amount,  startingDate, EndingDate
from MTImpAgentRateDet a
where transno='008'
group by transno,     cargotype,     CntrSize,     CntrType,      Destination,      amount

u may need to use IN

select      Transno,      CargoType,      CntrSize,      CntrType,      Destination,      amount,  startingDate, EndingDate
from MTImpAgentRateDet a
where transno='008'
group by transno,     cargotype,     CntrSize,     CntrType,      Destination,      amount
where transno='008'
and startingdate IN (select max(startingdate) from MTImpAgentRateDet  where a.Transno = Transno and a.CargoType = CargoType and a.CntrSize = CntrSize and a.CntrType = CntrType and a.Destination = Destination)

remove the group by, u dont need it in the outer
The inner query returns the max date, and we join on that



select Transno,      
     CargoType,      
     CntrSize,      
     CntrType,      
     Destination,      
     amount,  
     startingDate,
     EndingDate
from MTImpAgentRateDet a
where transno='008'
and startingdate = (select max(startingdate) from MTImpAgentRateDet  where a.Transno = Transno and a.CargoType = CargoType and a.CntrSize = CntrSize and a.CntrType = CntrType and a.Destination = Destination)
