Stuck on stupid again...

I need to set up an SQL statement to yield the date of the last sales invoice by date. For some reason this morning, I can't seem to wrap head around it.

Here's what I'm trying to do:

Let's say I have a customer table with the Customer Number, the Invoice Date and the Invoice Amount as follows:

Cust      Date       Amount
A      05/01/12       $5.00
A      07/15/12       $17.25
A      08/30/12       $18.24
B      04/02/12       $25.00
B      07/13/12       $27.00
B      09/25/12       $84.00
C      03/13/12       $23.00
C      04/17/12       $19.00
C      12/21/12       $16.00

I need to run an SQL statement to yield the following result:

Cust      Date
A      08/30/12
B      09/25/12
C      12/21/12

I'd appreciate the assistance to get me past this.
Thanks,
Todd

And if you need additional fields...

SELECT * 
FROM YourTable t INNER JOIN
(SELECT Cust, Max([Date]) as MostRecent
FROM YourTable
GROUP BY Cust) q
ON q.MostRecent = t.[Date]
