MS Access Query--Display only first (top) record set

Experts:

I have an Access Query ("Querry1").  Record-sets within this Query are automatically sorted by the 'Last Field that was Modified' so the Record-set containing the last field that was updated will always appear first (at the top) in my Query.
I only want the Query to display this first (top) Record-set (I do not want any other Record-sets to be displayed).  Does anyone have an idea how to do this?

I'm not great with Access, so if you could walk me though each step it would be most appreciated.

Thanks.

You need to use TOP 1 clause in the query. Let's assume your query has this syntax:
SELECT column1, column2, LastModifiedDate
FROM Table1
ORDER BY LastModifiedDate DESC

Open in new window

When you add the TOP 1 clause the query will look like:
SELECT TOP 1 column1, column2, LastModifiedDate
FROM Table1
ORDER BY LastModifiedDate DESC

Open in new window
