Top Scores

A scores table looks like this, recording each player's score on a number of competition days.

CompDate, Player, Score

I'd like a query that picks just the winners on each date. So shows Date, winner (or ties) and winning score.

RE: Top Scores

The simplest method is to first create a query of top scores by date:



SELECT CompDate, Max(Score) as MaxScore
FROM tblScores
GROUP BY CompDate; 
Then create another query using the table and new query:


FROM tblScores S INNER JOIN qgrpTopScores Q ON S.CompDate = Q.CompDate and S.Score = Q.MaxScore 

This can also be done in a single query.

RE: Top Scores

Thanks Duane, as ever.

I substituted S and Q for my table and field names but then it did the job.
