Sorting joined table results chronologically to return most recent entry
Posted by: Shannon Whitty

I have 3 Database Tables:

- OpenROHeader
- OpenROData
- OpenRONotes

Header & Data are updated (overwritten) hourly while Notes are added manually and linked via a field "RO_Number"

What I want the SQL to do is retrieve the most current "Notes" (by 'date_updated')

SELECT file_date, as id, key_id, key_name, key_value, DATE_FORMAT(expected_close_date , '%d/%m/%y' ) as expected_close_date, wty_dept
FROM OpenROHeader roh
JOIN OpenROData rod ON
LEFT JOIN OpenRONotes ron ON rod.key_value=ron.ro_number
WHERE roh.customer_id='193'
GROUP BY key_id, key_name

There are 2 entries in Notes table - I want the most recent:

id, customer_id, ro_number, expected_close_date, advisor_notes, wty_dept, date_updated
4059, 193, 'S117986', NULL, 'WTY_ON<br>- S.W.', 'on', '2018-09-24 05:02:45'
4060, 193, 'S117986', NULL, 'WTY_OFF<br>- S.A.', NULL, '2018-09-24 05:03:24'

I want it to return data (last 2 columns) in SELECT from row with id 4060 NOT 4059!9/f00326/1/0

But instead of returning most current 'wty_dept' (NULL) from 2018-09-24 05:03:24

My SQL statement is returning the previous entry 'on' from 2018-09-24 05:02:45 (older)

How can I sort a join to return most recent data
