Hi

I am selecting records mulitple tables as follows

select distinct o.order_id, o.order_date, u.name, a.addressid
from orders o
inner join users u on o.user_id=u.user_id
inner join addresses a on u.user_id=a.user_id
where o.order_status='c'

I also want to add a column to the above which contains the max order_id from the above selected records.  

How can I acheive this?

actually that doesnt work as it returns the highest order number within the grouping.

If there are a total of 300 records selected using the query above then I want to return the highest order_id out of those 300 records so that each row will show the same value for the MaxOrderId column (as below)

order_id    MaxOrderId
1                 4
2                 4
3                 4
4                 4
