Get the products with the highest price

Hi
Everyday we enter buyers that put prices out for products.  We enter the prices for each product they list.

What I am trying to do is create a query that will show which buyer has the highest price for each product entered daily.

For example the data looks like this:

BuyerCode              CodePD               Price               Date
AA                                   H1                    $280              24/11/14
GH                                  H1                    $295              24/11/14
GG                                  H1                    $285              24/11/14
SG                                   H1                    $275              24/11/14
AA                                   CO                   $300               24/11/14
GG                                  CO                    $305               24/11/14
and so on and so on........

What I would like it to be able to list the highest price details:
BuyerCode             CodePD                Price                 Date
GH                                H1                     $295                24/11/14
GG                                CO                     $305                24/11/14
etc etc
If a buyer has the same price then that should show in the results.

I hope I have explained it properly....I can clarify if need be.

Thanks in advanced.

try this query

select T.*
from TableX as T
inner join
(select max(t2.Price) as maxPrice, t2.CodePD, t2.[Date]
 from tableX as t2
 group by t2.CodePD, p2.[Date]) as t3
on  T.CodePD=t3.CodePD and t3.[Date]=t3.[Date] and T.Price=t3.maxPrice

you need to use the query similar to this:
Select
prices.BuyerCode, prices.CodePD, prices.Price, prices.Date
FROM prices INNER JOIN
(SELECT CodePD, Max(Price) AS MaxPrice, Date
 FROM prices GROUP BY CodePD, Date) AS m
ON prices.CodePD = m.CodePD AND prices.Date = m.Date
ORDER BY 3 DESC, 1, 2

Open in new window

Please note, that with the query above, when several buyers have the same highest price for the day they will be listed

Thanks for the replies.

Rey Obrero, I get a join expression not supported.

Chaau, with a bit of tweaking I got it working how I needed.

Thanks for you help!

typo on the join,  t3.[Date]=t3.[Date]  should be T.[Date]=t3.[Date]


select T.*
from TableX as T
inner join
(select max(t2.Price) as maxPrice, t2.CodePD, t2.[Date]
 from tableX as t2
 group by t2.CodePD, p2.[Date]) as t3
on  T.CodePD=t3.CodePD and T.[Date]=t3.[Date] and T.Price=t3.maxPrice
