How to keep a record with the highest value

Last Modified: 2017-04-10
I want to keep only records with the highest value when a duplicate exists. The column containing the highest value is named Revision and the column containing the duplicate is named Manual_ID.

Ex:

     Manual_ID               Revision
  22.11.20_A1234               4
  22.11.20_A1234               5

I want to keep only the record containing Revision 5.
