Selecting Top Record

Selecting Top Record

Selecting Top Record

can have numerous inspection dates per client, want to select the top record from each client and display.

For instance may have :

ClientNo    Name    Type   Date
    1       Smith  annual  2/1/08
    1       Smith  annual  2/1/07
    1       Smith  Initial 2/1/06
    2       Doe    Annual  12/7/07
    2       Doe    Initial 12/1/06

Only want to Display :

ClientNo   Name    Type   Date
    1      Smith  annual  2/1/08
    2      Doe    Annual  12/7/07

Basically the first record based on the change of client number. How is this possible in SQL?
