What decides if 1233 or 1234 from Table1 should be selected?

I presume you need to review the specs ... because I don't see an explanation why table2 is actually needed, and I see no explanation on why row2 from table1 is returned and why not row1.

meanwhile, you might want to read this article, I presume it will help you:

My mistake


select MAX(A.Column1) [Table1 Column1], B.Column1 [table2 Column1], MAX(A.Column3) [Column3]
from Table1 A
inner join Table2 B on B.Column1 = A.Column2
group by B.Column1

Basically I need the max value from table1 and for some rows, it is returning the both the rows even though I have used max(column1) in my query. Not sure why
Thanks

ewangoya,

We don't know why he is selecting one row over the other - maybe it should be max, maybe min, maybe first, maybe last ... :-)

try this.
SELECT t1.Column1, 
       t2.Column1, 
       t1.Column3 
  FROM table1 t1 
       JOIN (  SELECT Column2, 
                      MAX(Column1) Column1 
                 FROM table1 
             GROUP BY Column2) AS t11 
         ON t1.Column1 = t11.Column1 
            AND t1.Column2 = t11.Column2 
       JOIN table2 t2 
         ON t1.Column2 = t2.Column2

Thanks for all your help guys and just to let you know I don't have to review my specs since it was pretty straight forward and I didn't specify all the columns in my tables and I wanted the maximum value.

Sharath's solution gave me the correct results. once again THANKS to all for quick response.
