Assuming SQL Server - this can't be Exchange can it?

-- from entire table
select top 1 * from tbl order by timestamp desc

-- latest for each customer
select customerid, timestamp, expense
from
(
select customerid, timestamp, expense,
  rn=row_number() over (partition by customerid order by timestamp desc)
from tbl
) sq
where rn=1

if you are doing this in access


select T.*
from tbl1 as T
Inner Join
(select T2.Customerid, Max(T2.Timestamp) AS MaxOfTimestamp
from tbl1 AS T2
group by T2.Customerid) As T3
On T.Timestamp=T3.MaxOfTimestamp and T.Customerid=T3.Customerid
