SELECT Last Record from an online Access Database

Good Morning

I would like the following code to only return the last record in the database file. It currently displays each record to the last record. If I remove the loop it just returns the first record. My understanding is limited, but I think I need to change the SELECT to something like:

strSQL = "SELECT tblComments.S1, tblComments.S2, tblComments.S3, tblComments.Date, tblComments.EN, tblComments.CW, tblComments.Status, tblComments.SSO FROM tblComments WHERE ID_no = SELECT MAX lngRecordNo FROM tblComments"

Many thanks

If you turn off "Show Friendly HTTP Error Messages" in your browser advanced settings then it should show you the underlying error. Most likely it is a simple syntax error somewhere.

I have just tried the above and get the same error message. I am sure its linked to changing the SELECT to include LAST.

Try your query as the following which basically orders the records in descending order and pulls the first one (assuming ID_no is the name iof the ID column on the table):
strSQL = "SELECT TOP 1 tblComments.S1, tblComments.S2, tblComments.S3, tblComments.Date, tblComments.EN, tblComments.CW, tblComments.Status, tblComments.SSO FROM tblComments ORDER BY ID_no DESC"
