I receive statements each month and I am trying to determine if a statement did not come in.  Example: account 12345 last statement was November 2013, so I am missing a December statement.  

I am trying to locate the newest statement received only but my query gives me all of the statement dates, not just the newest.

My Fields:
AccountNumber
StatementDate
ClientName

Try this:
Select * 
from table a
where StatementDate = (Select max(Statmentdate) from table b where accountnumber = a.accountnumber)

Open in new window


The results should be the last statement for each customer.

Sorry with regard to field name sin the query,

The fields AccountNumber and Client Name come from the table Accounts.  The field StatementDate comes from the table Statements.

Try this one with the new table names:
Select *
from Accounts a inner join Statements S on a.accountNumber = s.AccountNumber
where s.statementDate = (Select max(StatementDate) from statements where accountNumber = a.Accountnumber

Open in new window

The max(StatementDate) gives me the max statement date in the system. Example: 12/20

I need the max statement date per each account #.

This is my SQL:

SELECT Accounts.AccountNumber AS Account, Statements.StatementDate AS [Last Statement], Accounts.ClientName AS Client, Accounts.Payee, Accounts.Status
FROM Accounts INNER JOIN Statements ON Accounts.[AccountNumber] = Statements.[AccountID]
WHERE Statements.[StatementDate] = (Select max(StatementDate) FROM Statements where AccountNumber = Accounts.AccountNumber)


EXAMPLE OF OUTPUT:  This would show me missing 2 December statements

Account      Last Statement      Client      Payee      Status
12345      11-Nov-13      aaaa      10101      Active
45678      30-Nov-13      bbbb      10102      Active
159623      15-Dec-13      cccc      10103      Closed
111422      30-Dec-13      dddd      10104      Active

I think you nee to make a minor change to sub query:
(Select max(StatementDate) FROM Statements where AccountID= Accounts.AccountNumber)

Open in new window

instead of accountnumber = accountnumber
