SQL problem? Show the SQL you've written already. Consider using the 
max() operator. There are some good examples at 
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/examples.html (which may be 
useful even if you're not using MySQL)

ORM problem? Solution will depend on which ORM you are using (e.g. 
ActiveRecord, Datamapper, Sequel, Og, ...).
