I have a large table with 2 significant columns of data
Part
ApplianceType

In order to set a generic description for each Part, I need to find the most prominent value of ApplianceType.

So in a GROUP BY Part, ApplianceType, I'd want only those rows returned where the COUNT(*) was highest for Part.

What is the best way of doing this?
