Hi,

I need to write a query that gives me following results.

Table :

EDUID	      START_TIME                 DTMF

4e419196 2011-08-09 22:58:36.950 2125354614
4e419181 2011-08-09 22:59:08.697 2
4e419188 2011-08-09 22:59:16.347 4642260017
4e419181 2011-08-09 22:59:28.597 nmt              
4e419196 2011-08-09 22:59:30.053 2164423695
4e41919d 2011-08-09 22:59:36.387 Disc
4e419198 2011-08-09 22:59:31.683 nmt              
4e418e4f	2011-08-09 22:59:30.530 224243
4e419188 2011-08-09 22:59:39.347 4642265000

Query should give last records of each EDUID value.

Expected Result:

EDUID       START_TIME     DTMF
4e418e4f	2011-08-09 22:59:30.530 224243
4e419181  2011-08-09 22:59:28.597 nmt
4e419196  2011-08-09 22:59:30.053 2164423695
4e418e55  2011-08-09 22:51:44.687 2125539806
4e419188  2011-08-09 22:59:39.347 4642265000
4e41919d  2011-08-09 22:59:36.387  Disc
4e419198  2011-08-09 22:59:31.683  nmt

@sachinpatil10d
   the subquery would need to be corelated otherwise multiple rows per eduid could be present....

multiple rows case would be if the start_time is same for same eduid

so can i think this query should work

select distinct * from Test1 where START_TIME in (select MAX(start_time) start_time from test1 group by eduid)
