Two tables in Access - One-to-many

tblPatient
-------------
PatientID
PatientName


tblVisits
-----------
PatientID
DateOfVisit

I want a simple SQL that shows all patient names ONCE and also shows their latest tblVisits.DateOfVisit.

What is my SQL syntax?

select P.PatientName, Max(V.DateOfVisit)
from tblPatient as P Inner Join tblVisits As V
On P.PatientID=V.PatientID

You should group by the ID, except if you wish to sort on the patient name.

Something along the lines of:
SELECT tblPatient.PatientName, Max(tblVisits.DateOfVisit) AS [Last Visit]
FROM [tblVisits] INNER JOIN tblPatient ON tblVisits.PatientId = tblPatient.PatientId
GROUP BY tblPatient.PatientId;

(On a separate note , a special thanks to sodea63 ... WHY? because I can't help but wonder if we share the same surname.... O'Dea ??)
