Hello, I have 2 tables and I need to update the results in tableOne with the results from tableTwo where the IDs match. My problem is, tableTwo can have multiple entries with the same ID, so I want to use the record in tableTwo with the max(dateCreated).  Can someone help me alter the query below to accomplish this?

UPDATE tableOne
SET tableOne.col1 = tableTwo.col1
FROM tableOne, tableTwo 
WHERE tableOne.ID = tableTwo.ID
