I have a requirement like this: I have a holiday definiton table and a holiday dates table.
For a given holiday definition, there can be multiple holiday dates. so, based on the seq no, i get to get all the holiday definitons and all the dates for each holiday definition.
From this recordset, i need to fetch the holiday dates, get the biggest of those dates and display only 1 row for each holiday definition on the view with the largest date. How do I manipulate the resultset?

The best way to to only fetch the records you want in the first pace. You may be able to do this with a simple where clause. If not, some database systems allow you to limit the returned data to a "slice" of the results. For example, PostgreSQL has the LIMIT and OFFSET keywords to do this.
