Use of MAX, GROUP BY

Hi,
I've a query that returns me 3 data:

select number, name, editor
from table

I'd like to have the max(number),name, editor for each editor.
Exemple: the table:
result     name      editor
50          toto         A
60          dada       A
20          toto         B
10          dada       B

I want the follwoing result:
result     name    editor
60          dada     A
20          toto       B

Thanks & Regards.

Try this

select a.result, a.name, a.editor
from yourtable a
where a.result = (select max(b.result) from yourtable b where a.editor = b.editor)

In fact my table is not one table , but a result of a join between 3 tables .....
Sirees Solution works, but not in my case.
About ved17nov's solution, it doesn't work because you didn't include name into the group by.
so it returns me an error msg.

This is a sample query to resolve your problem.

select t1.* from mytable t1
inner join (select max(number) as maxNumber, editor from mytable group by editor) t2
on t1.number = t2.maxNumber and t1.editor = t2.editor
order by t1.editor
