I have a db with 2 tables.  they are related by a specific column.
They each have an id row that corresponds to each other.  The one table holds the company info and then the other table holds pricing info.  I need to run through all the rows in the pricing table for a specifc date or date range.  And then for the max date for the specific id then I have to update that date in the company table in a last date column that is also assoc with that id.  Any ideas on a sp to do this?

Can you post the schema and some sample data from the two tables?  A possible solution is a join to a subquery that gets the max date.  Something like:

UPDATE company
SET company.LastDate = MaxDates.MaxDate
FROM company
INNER JOIN
  (SELECT ID, MAX(date) MaxDate
  FROM pricing
  WHERE date  = <specific date>
  --WHERE date BETWEEN <date1> AND <date2>
  GROUP BY ID) AS MaxDates ON MaxDates.ID = company.ID

Was this any help?  If you give me the schema I can give you a more specific answer.  On 2005 you can also use a CTE (Common table expression) to make the query more readible.  I can give an example of that as well if you would like.

Yeah that would be good.  Sry for not getting back to you just other things took a higher priority.

Here is the CTE example:

WITH MaxDates (ID, MaxDate) AS
 (SELECT ID, MAX(date) MaxDate
  FROM pricing
  WHERE date  = <specific date>
  --WHERE date BETWEEN <date1> AND <date2>
  GROUP BY ID )

UPDATE Company
SET Company.LastDate = MaxDates.MaxDate
FROM Company
INNER JOIN MaxDates on Company.ID = MaxDates.ID

I actually figured this out by using a function in my view to return the latest date.  That way I don't have to change any actual data.
