I have a table where In need to find the last transaction of a unique ID
Eg

SalesID     TransID      Name  
   85              197            xxxx
   85               199            xxxx
    85              285            xxxxxxxxxx
    85               167            xxxx
   106               298            xxxx
   106               402        xxxxxxxxxx
   106               588         xxxx


so the above I would want to return the max unique ID(TransID)  -  in the above case the highest TransID of each unique SalesID


Resuts Id wanted returned from the above.

SalesID     TransID      Name  
 85              285            xxxxxxxxxx
106               588         xxxx

I have written this article:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/A_3203.html

one option would be:
select t.*
 from yourtable t
 where t.transid = ( select max(i.transid) from yourtable i wherei.SalesID = t.SalesID )
