Hi.
I have a table of login data. Need to find the most recent login by user - return single record for each user - need group by user and most recent login datetime
The data looks this

USER                    DATETIME LOGIN
JOHN                    1/2/2013  1:00
GAYLE                   1/2/2012  9:00
JOHN                    12/31/2012  12:00
GAYLE                   12/31/2012 10:00
BOB                      1/2/2012  12:00


SHOULD RETURN

GAYLE              1/2/2012  9:00
JOHN               1/2/2013  1:00
BOB                1/2/2012  12:00
