Hi,

I have a table which contains prices for assets. The asset is not priced everday. All I need to do is get the latest price for all assets held in the table..?

Table example:

Asset                         Price Date  (UK Dates)                Price
A                                03/11/2008                                  4
A                                01/01/2008                                  5
A                                01/07/2007                                  6
B                                01/02/2008                                  7  
B                                01/01/2005                                  7
B                                01/07/2004                                  8  
C                                01/07/2004                                  18  

The SQL should return...
A                                03/11/2008                                  4
B                                01/02/2008                                  7  
C                                01/07/2004                                  18  

Thanks in advance...

you mean:
SELECT t.*
  FROM yourtable t
 WHERE t.Price_Date = (SELECT MAX(i.price_date) FROM yourtable i WHERE i.Asset = t.Asset )
