# DMax

## Using the DMAX Function

In this tutorial you will learn how to use the DMAX Function.

Take an example Table of Customers.

10BarbraPeters829282728831/12/2005501True
11JoeJones549546546601/06/20045003True
14PezzDispo26/09/201204True
16BobSmith04/10/201209True

For this example we wish to find out the most recent Customer in our list. For this case we don't need a Criteria instead we are just going to get the Field of CustomerSince from the Domain of CustomerT and return the latest value from the whole set.

The DMAX function returns a value from a specified set of records (or domain) containing the maximum value.

=DMAX(Field, Domain, Criteria)

Query

The results using a Query would be

```	SELECT TOP 1 CustomerSince FROM CustomerT ORDER BY CustomerSince DESC
```
tblNames
CustomerIDFirstNameLastNamePhoneCustomerSinceCreditLimitDaysGraceIsActive
16BobSmith04/10/201209True

FORM

In a Form you could set the Default Value of a Textbox to

```	=DMAX("CusomterSince", "CustomerT", )
```
VBA

In a Form add a TEXTBOX control and rename it "txtDMax", then you could add the following in the Load Event.

```	Private Sub Form_Load()
txtDMax = DMax("CusomterSince", "CustomerT", )
End Sub
```
