I have a table with these fields (for simplicity)

MemberNum(int),     NoteMonth (int),  NoteYear(int), Notes(varchar(max))
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
100000,   1 , 2014, 'ABC'
100000,  2, 2014, 'CDE'
100000, 1, 2015, 'HEL'
200000, 12, 2013, 'AFG'
200000, 5, 2014,  'MMF'
200000, 7, 2015, 'PPP'



Every month a record is added with the year, and month

I need to get the latest Notes for each member


The Query Should Return the following rows

100000, 1, 2015, 'HEL'
200000, 7, 2015, 'PPP'
