I am trying to do this in Microsoft Access. I seem to be unable to construct a 'simple' query. To illustrate, here is a sample table:

Field1	Field2	Amount 
A	New	10
D	Old	5
G	Old	1
H	Old	15
H	New	55
X	Old	20
Z	Old	100
Z	New	20

I need to group by Field1 and only return the Field2 data for the record that has the maximum number in the Amount field. I tried to use the 'First' function but Microsoft Access sort the records internally so it does not return the right value even if I pre-sort the records with a sub-query. Do you have any advice? The result should look like the table below.

Desired Result:
Field1	Field2	Max(Amount)
A	New	10
D	Old	5
G	Old	1
H	New	55
X	Old	20
Z	Old	100
I have trouble getting the value of Field2 in the record containing to the maximum value of 'Amount.'

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your time!
