Hello
Is it possible to use sql statement (not PLSQL) to solve the following - eg
Table1 has 2 columns - dates and an amount against each date.
Assume 4 years of data ....
Date                  Amount
01/01/2000          25
01/02/2000          46
etc etc
Here is the logic - lets say for the first year from 01/01/2000 through to 31/12/2000 has a max value in that date range of 46.
I then want to jump forward by one month and work out the next max value - date range
01/02/2000 through to 01/01/2001 and the max value in that range is say 56.
I want to carry out this process for all the dates in the table and in theory will have a number of max values for reach time window where I jump foward by one month.
I then want the max of all the max values.
eg max(46,56,......................................)
Hope this makes sense
