JOIN without ON

My goal is to update only more recent records into a table from another 'import' table which gets updated daily...

There is considerable 'overlap' and I want to look at the MAX() value of a date in the table to be updated in order to select the records from the import table to be imported.

I came up with this:


SELECT * from ct_adp_load as new 
JOIN camp_ct_fsc as existing
WHERE new.deldate > MAX(existing.deldate) 
But I get an illegal use of group function error...

What am I doing wrong?



RE: JOIN without ON

is this what you were intending?


select a.* from a.ct_adp_load
where a.deldate > (select max(b.deldate) from camp_ct_fsc) b
