Access 2000 - Query question

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Dear Experts,

I have a problem which seems easy but can not find the solution, basically have such table in the attached database

Item     Location      Labour hours
10101   West            10
10102   East              30
10102   West             20
10103   North            40

So having three columns, it contains the labour hours for items on certain locations.

Could you advise how a query could give that location which has the highest Labour? So the max of labour, but the with the belonging location. So based on the example this would be the result

10101   West            10
10102   East              30
10103   North            40
