Hello all

In a query, I need to pull all of the last records of every itemID that is ActiveYN = Yes.

So if my table [t_Dtail] is

DetailID,  tdate, ItemID, ActiveYN

how do I do that?

If I do it as

SELECT * From t_dtail WHERE ActiveYN = True
I know I get everything that's true.

So if my table has 50 ItemID # 20 How do I get just the Last True of all the ItemID (not just number 20's??????

Tried
SELECT * From t_dtail WHERE ActiveYN = True HAVING ItemID= DMax(ItemID, t_Dtail,ItemID)

But that doesn't get it either
????????

Why not simple as

SELECT t_Dtail.ItemID, Max(t_Dtail.tdate) AS MaxDate
FROM t_Dtail
WHERE (((t_Dtail.ActiveYN)=True))
GROUP BY t_Dtail.ItemID;

Cap 1....

I ALWAYS ALWAYS try anything you post first!  History has taught me that your posts always work 99.999999% of the time

Either I was typing something wrong (couldn't copy and paste last night -no connection for laptop- where I was.... I was reading on my phone and trying to type it into my laptop.  I will give your's a whirl again today.


PS.... The 0.0000001% of the time it doesn't work is because my table isn't set up right to allow what I want to do to work............

Cap 1 ....  I tried the last suggestion.......

select a.*
from t_dtail as a
inner join
(select max(b.tdate) as maxtdate, b.itemid
 from t_dtail as b
 group by b.itemid,b.ActiveYN
having b.ActiveYN= true
) as c
on a.itemid = c.itemid  and a.tdate=c.maxtdate


It produces the error

You tried to execute a query that does not include the specified expresion 'b.Active YN=-1' as part of an aggregate function.

The code above is a cut/paste from my sql view..........
????????????

Yes. .... Once I used the right one....So again... That bad was on me!

Like I said above ... I've seen enough here to know you are one of the best on here ....  You, MBiz and Irog and LSM always shoot straight with great pointers.  Others on here are great too ... Not discrediting them in any way ... Just know when one of the above post usually it always works (unless I screw up the typing or misinterpret something)

THANK YOU!
