Default Select the latest date, then the lowest price.

Hi folks

I am struggling with an update query.
What I need to do is group a [part code], select the latest available date then from that selection select the [lowest price] for each [part code]

[part code]
[lowest price]

Any one got any great ideas on where to start?

I have no idea what you are asking.

You need to select a result set from a table and then from that resultset you need to select the latest available date and then from that result set you need the lowest price?

Is that correct?

I will only tell you how to do it, not do it for you.
Unless, of course, you want to hire me to do work for you.

That is indeed correct.

So If I had this data....

sku1 21.00 09/10/2006
sku1 20.00 08/10/2006
sku1 19.00 08/10/2006
sku1 20.00 09/10/2006
sku2 31.00 09/10/2006
sku2 30.00 08/10/2006
sku2 29.00 08/10/2006
sku2 30.00 09/10/2006

I want this to update another table.

sku1 20.00 09/10/2006
sku2 30.00 09/10/2006


Sorry I did not explain well.
