I have a table Customer which has following columns

Custid,PersonId,Startdate,Enddate,name,age .......

For each person there can be multiple rows in the table customer depending
on startdate and end date .I want to select one personid for each person from table customer,the one having maximum end date.
Consider the following example for table Customer

CustId PersonId startdate Enddate Name age ...

100 1 01/12/2011 02/12/2011 person1

101 1 02/13/2011 04/14/2011 person1

102 2 02/11/2011 04/14/2011 person2

103 2 04/15/2011 05/12/2011 person2

My query should give me

101 1 02/13/2011 04/14/2011 person1

103 2 04/15/2011 05/12/2011 person2

Please provide some help as to how to form the query for such a scenario



Thanks in advance

Something like this should work nicely

Select 
t.CustId
,t.PersonId
,t.startdate
,t.Enddate
,t.Name
from
(
Select
CustId
,PersonId
,startdate
,Enddate
,Name
,ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY PersonId ORDER BY Enddate DESC) as rownum
from
table1
) as t
where
t.rownum=1

Another is to do an INNER JOIN to a subquery for the CustID and MAX(EndDate), joined on both fields.

A third method would be to put the above subquery into a CTE and join to the CTE.

It looks to me like Customer and Person data need to be separated in this, to make it work well.

I'd be willing to be that "name" and "age" really belong in a "People" table.

Normalizing the data that way will make everything you do with it easier.
