SELECT Based on Max() value

SELECT Based on Max() value

(OP)
Hello,

In an Oracle 10g database I have the below SQL which works:

CODE

SELECT sid,recid,stamp,output
FROM v$rman_output
WHERE recid > 17400
ORDER BY recid;

Functionally I need to run this:

CODE

SELECT sid,recid,stamp,output
FROM v$rman_output
WHERE recid > max(rownum)-25
ORDER BY recid;

But I get the error:

WHERE recid > max(rownum)-25
              *
ERROR at line 3:
ORA-00934: group function is not allowed here


What can you recommend please?

Thanks,

TD
