Hi Experts

Using an sql query I want to get a particular column value for a row that has MAX values in 2 other columns, something like:

SELECT FloatAmount, MAX(CountDate), MAX(CountDateNumber)
FROM Count


Has anyone got any idea how to do this?

If these two max values are in different rows then you have no solution...
If you have duplicate max values then you have many solutions...

SELECT FloatAmount, CountDate, CountDateNumber FROM Count
WHERE CountDate = (SELECT MAX(CountDate) FROM Count)
  AND CountDateNumber = (SELECT MAX(CountDateNumber) FROM Count)

So you have to better specify what is your goal.
