Hello Experts,

I have a table called header that contains 2 columns SNUM and Time. I am trying to select the highest value of time per group. See attached image.

Expected result is:
SNUM         Time
1                 1/22/15 1:45AM
2                 1/22/15 3:25AM
3                 1/22/15 2:05AM

Select Distinct SNUM, (Select Top 1 t2.Time From Table1 t1 Order By t2.Time Dedc) As MaxTime From Table1 t1

or

Select SNUM, Max(Time) As MaxTime From Table1 Group By  SNUM Order By Time Desc

or just

Select SNUM, Max(Time) As MaxTime From Table1 Group By  SNUM
