Return only latest status update in query

Hi.  I am using Access 2010 and trying to create a query that will return only the most recent status update for a project.
Here's the sql for the query.

SELECT DISTINCT qryProjectID.ProjID, tblStatus.StatusDate, Max(tblStatus.StatusDate) AS LatestDate
FROM qryProjectID INNER JOIN tblStatus ON qryProjectID.ProjID = tblStatus.ProjectID
GROUP BY qryProjectID.ProjID, tblStatus.StatusDate;
picture of resultsThis is the result I get.  I want Project 1 only once and showing the last status update date.  Suggestions anyone?

Tables are tblProject with ProjID and tblStatus with ProjectID, StatusID, StatusDate, and other detail fields.  Tables are joined one to many from tblProject to tblStatus.

if you want the project just once then remove  tblStatus.StatusDate as a column and in the group by

SELECT qryProjectID.ProjID,  Max(tblStatus.StatusDate) AS LatestDate
FROM qryProjectID INNER JOIN tblStatus ON qryProjectID.ProjID = tblStatus.ProjectID
GROUP BY qryProjectID.ProjID;

ps, never use select distinct when also doing a group by - it's a complete waste of time

Remove the Distinct predicate.  It is interfering with the grouping.
