Hey,

I have 2 tables (PTO [Parent] &  PTODetails [Child]) that have a 1 to many relationship between them.  I would like to get the information from the parent table and some aggregated information from the child table using linq.  

If i where using SQL i would write something like this:

Select PTO.ID, Max(PTODetails.RequestDate), Min(PTODetails.RequestDate), PTO.PersonID
From  PTO Inner Join PTODetails on PTO.ID = PTODetails.PTOID
Where PTO.RequestDate > GetDate()

How would i go about writting something like that in LINQ?

Thanks in advance...

There are a whole heap of resources on LINQ, so you just need to find the right one.

Here's a simple example
Dim Customers As New List(Of Customer)
    Dim Orders As New List(Of Order)
    Private Sub LoadCustomers()
        Customers.Add(New Customer With {.CustomerID = 1, .Name = "AAA"})
        Customers.Add(New Customer With {.CustomerID = 2, .Name = "BBB"})
        Customers.Add(New Customer With {.CustomerID = 3, .Name = "CCC"})
        Orders.Add(New Order With {.CustomerID = 2, .OrderID = 23})
        Orders.Add(New Order With {.CustomerID = 1, .OrderID = 11})
        Orders.Add(New Order With {.CustomerID = 1, .OrderID = 13})
        Orders.Add(New Order With {.CustomerID = 2, .OrderID = 27})
        Orders.Add(New Order With {.CustomerID = 2, .OrderID = 24})
        Orders.Add(New Order With {.CustomerID = 2, .OrderID = 26})
        Orders.Add(New Order With {.CustomerID = 2, .OrderID = 25})
        Orders.Add(New Order With {.CustomerID = 3, .OrderID = 39})
        Orders.Add(New Order With {.CustomerID = 1, .OrderID = 12})
        Orders.Add(New Order With {.CustomerID = 3, .OrderID = 31})
        Orders.Add(New Order With {.CustomerID = 3, .OrderID = 32})
        Orders.Add(New Order With {.CustomerID = 2, .OrderID = 22})
    End Sub

    Public Sub GroupLinq()
        LoadCustomers()
        Dim Q = From Cust In Customers, Ord In Orders
                Where Cust.CustomerID = Ord.CustomerID
                Group Ord By Cust Into
                MaxID = Max(Ord.OrderID),
                MinID = Min(Ord.OrderID)

        For Each obj In Q
            Console.WriteLine(String.Format("Customer: {0}, Min: {1}, Min: {2}", obj.Cust.CustomerID, obj.MinID, obj.MaxID))
        Next
        Console.ReadLine()
    End Sub
