SQL Query syntax question

Hello all,

I am trying to clean up a table that was bulk loaded with a bunch of duplicate records and I wanted to only keep the MAX(DATEOFFERRED) of the grouped records in the query below.   The problem is the MAX(DATE_OFFERRED) has multiple of the same DATEOFFERRED date.  So what I want to do is only keep the first of the max date offerred grouped records.   Can anyone assist with this?

SELET count(*) FROM Availables t
 JOIN
 (
 SELECT
 Part_No
 ,Qty
 ,Price
 ,MAX(DateOfferred) [Latest Date Offerred]
 FROM
Availables
 GROUP BY
Part_No
 ,Qty
 ,Price
 ) Latest
 ON
t.Part_No = Latest.Part_No
 AND t.Qty = Latest.Qty
 AND t.Price = Latest.Price
 AND t.DateOfferred <> Latest.[Latest Date Offerred]

if your SQL version is above 2005 you can try this

Select * from (
Select *, row_number() over(partition by  Part_No  ,Qty  ,Price order by DateOfferred desc) rowID
 FROM Availables) A where A.rowID = 1

How do I get a count of everything but the max records as I want to get an idea how many I can delete.  This is my latest query I had to add more fields for the grouping,

Select count(*) from (
Select *, row_number() over(partition by  Part_No, MF, DC, Qty, Price, CO_ID order by DateOfferred desc) rowID
 FROM Availables) A where A.rowID = 1

So my goal it to get a count of the records I will end up deleting then run a delete statement to delete all the non row desc records.   I only want to delete of course the records there is more than one though as well so if there is only one record I don't want to delete those.
