Re: Problem with sub query

The query ...
select x, max(y) from t where...
without a Group By clause, will return one row at most containing a max(y) value and an entirely arbitrary value of x---an x value that has nothing to do with that max(y) result. What in the world is the use to you of such an arbitrary value?

Please post a statement in clear English of the query requirement ... then we can help you with it.
