Couple of ways to pull this off, this looks decent..
SELECT id, due_date
FROM your_table
WHERE due_date IN (SELECT max_date FROM your_table)

SELECT TOP 1 id, due_date
FROM your_table
ORDER BY due_date DESC

See below.   I left out part of my question.  These records say are tasks associated with a job table.   This query picks off the max date out for all the records.  I'm actually creating a view, so I need a set of records that show the task ID and task Max(DueDate) for each job.

How could I modify this to get what I need?


 SELECT id, duedate
  FROM [tdsQA].[dbo].[tds_grant_funding_request_report]
  WHERE  duedate IN (SELECT max(duedate) FROM [tds_grant_funding_request_report])

This will be a view, so order by does not help.

Ah, think I got it:

  SELECT id, duedate
  FROM [tdsQA].[dbo].[tds_grant_funding_request_report]
  WHERE  duedate IN
   (SELECT max(duedate) FROM [tds_grant_funding_request_report] group by fk_funding_requestID)

where fk_funding_requestID is the "job" primary key, in effect.
