Hi,

I want to fetch the latest record from a DB2 table based on one field PO create time stamp, thru an SQL query only.

Thanks
Subrat

If it by an SQL query only why did you post a request for a sort solution in the sort forum?
Possibly:
Code:
Where TIMESTAMP = Max(Timestamp)

but you will have to do your due diligence in checking that.

Suppose my table structure is like below:

ACT-ID PO-NBR ACT-TS
12 12345 2015-12-02-10-00-00-000000
12 12345 2015-12-02-09-00-00-000000
12 12345 2015-12-02-08-00-00-000000
15 99999 2015-12-01-04-00-00-000000
15 99999 2015-12-01-09-00-00-000000
25 12345 2015-12-03-09-00-00-000000
25 88888 2015-12-01-09-01-00-000000

I want to fetch the latest ACT-TS for each PO-NBR and ACT-ID in (12,15) only.
so my output data should be:

ACT-ID PO-NBR ACT-TS
12 12345 2015-12-02-10-00-00-000000
15 99999 2015-12-01-09-00-00-000000

Have tried first , what has given to you? Are you clear what would you want to achieve ?
If you want further help then provide us sample input, logic , output what yo want.

Add a Where condition to above sql,
Code:
Where act-id in  (12,15)
