I have two tables with one to many relationship namley employees (Emp) and qualifications (Qual). I want to select all employees with the most recent qualification. Each employee might have more than one qualification. The two tables are joined by the emp_cpr column. I tried the following SQL query :

SELECT Emp.CPR, Emp.name, Max(Qual.Date) AS Date
FROM Emp INNER JOIN Qual ON emp.cpr = Qual.cpr
GROUP BY Emp.cpr,emp.name

It's working  only if I select two columns from the first table namely emp_cpr and emp_name. I want to group all employees by cpr showing only thier latest qualification.

Thanks

SELECT e.cpr, q.QualDescr --guessing on the column name here!
FROM Emp e INNER JOIN
      Qual q ON e.cpr = q.CPR INNER JOIN
      (SELECT q2.cpr, Max(q2.Date) AS MaxDate
      FROM Qual q2
      GROUP BY q2.cpr) z ON q.cpr = z.cpr AND q.Date = z.MaxDate
