Simple Access Query

I have a table with the following data describing the schedule for a certain employee.  

ID* EmpID      EffectiveDate    InSched     Weekday
1    123           1/1/2000           9:30AM      Mon
2    123           1/1/2000           9:30AM      Tue
3    123           1/1/2000           9:30AM      Wed
4    123           1/1/2000           9:30AM      Thu
5    123           1/1/2000           9:30AM      Fri
6    123           1/1/2001           9:15AM      Mon    

I'd like the query to eliminate line 5 because line 6 shows a newer schedule for employee 123 for Mondays.

EffectiveDate and InSched fields are Date/Time fields.  The Weekday field is just short text.

Any help will be much appreciated.

You need 2 queries or query-in-query (you table is Table1 - replace with real name):
SELECT Table1.ID, Table1.EmpID, Table1.EffectiveDate, Table1.InSched, Table1.Weekday
FROM Table1 INNER JOIN (SELECT Table1.EmpID, Max(Table1.EffectiveDate) AS MaxOfEffectiveDate, Table1.Weekday
FROM Table1 GROUP BY Table1.EmpID, Table1.Weekday
ORDER BY Max(Table1.EffectiveDate)) as Query0 ON (Table1.Weekday = Query0.Weekday) AND (Table1.EffectiveDate = Query0.MaxOfEffectiveDate) AND (Table1.EmpID = Query0.EmpID);

Aren't you wanting to eliminate line 1 instead of 5?

A bit confused by your data examples ...

Will each weekday share the same effective date?
Will it always be 5 days (Mon thru Fri) for each employee?
