Hi there, I have a query that I want to modify so I can get the soonest date from a few different records

Set TicketDiscount=oConn.Execute("SELECT * FROM ticket_discount WHERE ticket_ID="&Request.QueryString("ticket"))

Open in new window


The records have dates of expiry, eg
ticket 1 exp=2/12/16
ticket 2 exp=8/5/1=7

What I want to do is grab the ticket that the expiry is soonest, how would I modify my query to do that?

Cheers all

hi,
do you mean this?

Set TicketDiscount=oConn.Execute("SELECT top 1 * FROM ticket_discount  order by Expiry_Date desc")

Open in new window

With a bit of playing here it is! :)

Set TicketDiscount=oConn.Execute("SELECT TOP 1 * FROM ticket_discount WHERE ticket_ID="&Request.QueryString("ticket")&" ORDER BY ticket_exp")
