I am using BI4 and need some help with a business objects query. the query works fine except for returning all dates. The query has an effective date field and I dont want every date for each person just the latest date.

select * from
(select t.*,row_number() over(partition by person order by effective_date desc) rn
from your_table t)
where rn = 1

Also, what do I need to replace to get it to work.

select * from
(select t.*,row_number() over(partition by person order by effective_date desc) rn
from your_table t)
where rn = 1

create a view in your database that looks like that query except change the table and column names to whatever is appropriate for your real source table.

Then add that view to your universe and query it as if it were the original table  The only difference will be you'll have an extra "rn" column you might want to ignore.  You could remove that from the view though by specifying the columns instead of *

or, if you don't have the option of putting that in the database, you could create a derived table within the universe much the same way and then use the derived table instead of the original source table
