I don't know where to start with this.

I need a query to return the most recent status for a given client. Using SQL Server2008. There are multiple dates and multiple statuses.

The status field can include any number of statuses.  I don't know what will be in that field. The query should generate a list of the existing statuses for the given client and then get the most recent date for each status.

@ClientNum = '6000'

ClientNum      Date      Status
6000      06/14/10           Started
6000      06/24/10           Process1
6000      07/04/10           Process2
6000      07/14/10           Finished

Can you help me??
