Having an issue with a MsAccess query.
My issue is that I have data that has a unique identifier; (CCP_INQ_KEY) within this identifier there are tasks we call "Action" each action has a date & time assigned to it (TaskActionCreatedDate). I am trying to return from this TaskActionCreatedDate the "Action" that matches the Max "TaskActionCreatedDate" date and time.
Example below; So I know that 05/07/2015 is my Max date/time but when I run the query I only want to bring back the Action that matches that Max TaskActionCreatedDate Not all of the Actions.
When I use group as my total for Action, I get all Actions; when I use Last or Max as my total for Action I get the last Action Alphbetically listed.
I feel like I need to utilize the Max function within the formula on the Action column but cannot seem to accomplish anything with that; Something like IIf(Max([TaskActionCreatedDate],[Action],""))
Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks!

so you want the most recent row for a specific CCP_INQ_KEEY?
SELECT CCP_INQ_KEEY, Action, TaskAction, Max(CreatedDate) FROM mytable WHERE CCP_INQ_KEEY = 494599092014
or if you want the most recent creation date for every CCP_INQ_KEEY
SELECT CCP_INQ_KEEY, Action, TaskAction, Max(CreatedDate) FROM mytable GROUP BY CCP_INQ_KEEYIIf(Max([TaskActionCreatedDate],[Action],""))
I cannot comprehend how you woudl use the Max function inside an IIF, a DMAX maybe but that would be tortuous on a big datasetI'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
