Pull only most recent record where Job.Change_Pct <>0

(OP)
Hello everyone,

I'm trying to write a report that pulls an employee's most recent pay change only. The problem is, some of our data entry folks don't always use an action of PAY - I had one example this morning where they used "Promotion" with a reason of "Normal Step Progression".

So, I thought a way around this might be to pull the most recent record where Job.Change_Pct does not equal 0.

However, I can't get this to work. This is my SQL statement so far:

(SELECT
    MAX("INNERALIAS"."EFFDT")
FROM
    PS_JOB INNERALIAS
WHERE
    (("INNERALIAS"."EMPLID" = "PS_JOB"."EMPLID")
AND
    ("PS_JOB"."CHANGE_PCT" <>0)))

This works when an employee's most recent record has a change percent - but does not pull an employee who's most recent record is only a data change, etc.

Also, in the Selections box, I'm using this formula like this: Data field PS_Job.Effdt is equal to formula "formula above" Is this the correct way to use the SQL statement?
Help please! Thanks!
