Hi:
   I waanted to create a SQL that does the following things.

I have a Table1 with structure:
A B C D E
data in table T1 is:
-------
A B C D E
1 Buy c1  May1 2009  E1
1 Buy c2  May 3 2009 E2
2 Sell C1 Dec 1 2008   E3

I want my SQL to return this:
A B D
1 Buy May 3 2009
2 Sell Dev 1 2008
i.e.
B belongs in a list of values say Buy,Sell,Hold
D = max date record for A
A = key

How should my SQL look?
