I have a field (RcdId) which is of Int type.  I would like to extract the value of the largest one in the table.  In this example I want the result of 236.  I posted code using Max and Asc but they do not work in C#.  Your help is appreciated.
Emp No         RcdId
101      235
102      236
103      222
104      24
105      91

My environment is Visual Studio, the language is C# and I'm attached to a SQL Server db.

var LastRcdId = (from c in dbTimeClockPlus.EmployeeLists where Max(c.RecordId)ASC select c.RecordId).FirstOrDefault();

var LastRcdId = (from c in dbTimeClockPlus.EmployeeList select c.RecordId).Max(c.RecordId);

pretty much a repeat of kaufmed's solution.
//using System.Linq;
int LastRcdId = dbTimClockPlus.EmployeList.Max(rec => rec.RecordId);
