"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Do you need "only the max of period name records" (i.e., the last period)? Or all the records associated with that period?

If the former, then you could do this:

select max( to_date(period_name, 'Mon-YYYY') )
from
...


If the latter, then add a rank() clause to your select:

select *
from
(
select ...
 , rank() over(order by to_date(fdp.period_name, 'MON-YYYY') desc) most_recent
from
...
)
where most_recent=1

Open in new window


Since rank() gives the same value to rows with the same ranking criteria, everything that corresponds to the most recent value in fdp.period_name will have a rank value of 1.
