I need to run a select statement that exluces any records that have only 1 version and exclude any records Max(version) where Remvoved = 'F'

Data example is (name, version, removed) table is Analysis
XYZ, 1, F
ABC, 1, F
ABC, 2, F
ABC, 3, F
MNO, 1, F
MNO, 2, F

The value returned should be
ABC, 1, F
ABC, 2, F
MNO, 1, F

>>>exclude any records Max(version) where Remvoved = 'F'

but all 3 of your expected values have removed = 'F'

why are they there if you're supposed to exclude them?

S ELECT   name, version, removed
    FROM (SELECT a.*,
                 ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY name ORDER BY version DESC) rn,
                 COUNT(*) OVER (PARTITION BY name) cnt
            FROM analysis a)
   WHERE cnt > 1 AND NOT (rn = 1 AND removed = 'F')
ORDER BY name, version

Actaull the reference is one set of the issues this is other set where table was not update and the lesser version where never set as removed so I need to take the select statement and set removed to T.

so Sdstuber  how would I chnage this select statement to an update statement?

>>> how would I chnage this select statement to an update statement?

first you'll have to specify what do you want to update, and what you want the new values to be.

also,  that should be a new question, since it's a new requirement.

you can use the "ask a related question" link to tie them together if you want
