I have a library database that contains two tables.  Master table with library contents and a usage table listing each time something is used.

I want to create a report that lists all library entries and only the last time it was used.  Some library entries have not been used but I want to show them on the list anyway.

Book 1    used 1/1/11, 1/15/11 and 3/20/11
Book 2    never used
Book 3    used 10/1/11, 9/15/11 and 7/23/11

Desired report:
Book 1     3/20/11
Book 2
Book 3    10/1/11

I can get a complete listing with all usage dates.  But I only want to see the most recent one.  I've tried creating a query on the usage table listing the library entry ascending and usage date descending -- then tried to create a bound control on the report with a Dlookup -- but that didn't work.

Thanks for your help,
