I want to get count of collections in the year 2013 for age group 16.

But in the where clause I cannot use max(coll_date)
If the donor has donated multiple times  

   select coll_date
    from donations_don d,donors_don dn
   where d.donor_id = dn.donor_id
     and coll_date between '01-jan-2013' and '31-dec-2013'
     and unit_id is not null  
    and dn.donor_id = 'DN20093654'
      order by coll_date


Now how do I calculate count for age group 16.

 select count(*)
    from donations_don d,donors_don dn
   where d.donor_id = dn.donor_id
     and coll_date between '01-jan-2013' and '31-dec-2013'
     and unit_id is not null  
       and TRUNC(MONTHS_BETWEEN(max(coll_date), date_of_birth)/12)  = 16

why not use today to calculate the age ?

and TRUNC(MONTHS_BETWEEN(sysdate, date_of_birth)/12)  = 16

or the last date of the year at that time
or the date the donation was done  > colldate

and TRUNC(MONTHS_BETWEEN(coll_date, date_of_birth)/12)  = 16
