I have a Query I am running but it doesn't seem to ge thte max(UploadTime) on every query. I looked in the data base and saw times greater than the time being returned Example:
ID            UploadTime          Tech                                tID
3899      11/10/2014 12:40      Tech1               1067      3      2      5/19/2014      10/30/2014      649.25 <-- returns this one
3901      11/10/2014 13:19      Tech2             1067      3      2      5/19/2014      11/10/2014      649.25
3902      11/10/2014 13:25      Tech4             1067      3      2      5/19/2014      11/10/2014      649.25


DROP TABLE IF EXISTS Temp_MyTools;
CREATE TABLE Temp_MyTools(
Select sa.ToolType, sa.SerialNumber, MAX(cd.UploadTime) , cd.DefaultLocationIndex
from SerialA as sa
LEFT JOIN Control as cd ON cd.SerialNumber = sa.SerialNumber
where sa.tooltype in('CO')
AND Dead = 0 
GROUP BY sa.SerialNumber);
Select ToolType, SerialNumber FROM Temp_MyTools WHERE DefaultLocationIndex = 0

Does column [Dead] come from table Control?
Do all 3 records have tooltype = 'CO'?

For starters, your subquery's GROUP BY clause is missing sa.ToolType and cd.cd.DefaultLocationIndex.
All columns not participating in an aggregate such as SUM, COUNT, or MAX have to be in the GROUP BY.  

If you'd like some more reading on GROUP BY I have an image and code-heavy tutorial out there called SQL Server GROUP BY Solutions

@jim sorry it only added everything to the result set - not what I am looking for - I am looking for the max date where defaultlocationIndex = 0 (eventually 1 then 2)

Should be fixed anyways, as I'm surprised the code executes without throwing an error.

>I am looking for the max date where defaultlocationIndex = 0 (eventually 1 then 2)
Then defaultlocationIndex needs to be in the GROUP BY.

Your question is a little ambiguous given that your example shows 4 column names (with apparently 9 column values), none of which are tool_type, serial_number, defaultlocationindex, or dead as mentioned in your query. Perhaps you can post some sample data for the SerialA and Control tables along with their structure (i.e. column names and datatypes) and your expected results.

What I ended up doing was that query then up dating the temp table with a date from  the exact same query except where   DefaultLocationIndex = 1 then doing a select on the temp table
select * from Temp_MyTools WHERE 1stdate > 2ndDate
and that worked - but for some reason the max  method did not work - I could have been doing it wrong
