I used the same expression with some of my applications and it worked perfectly. Here's a sample sql statement on it:

SELECT Top 1 Location.LocationID, Location.State, Location.City
FROM Location
ORDER BY Location.LocationID DESC;

The result display the Max value of  LocationID with its corresponding records.

Sincerely,
Ed
