Just as an example i've got this data in a table:

ID    NAME     DATE
1     TEST-1   2012-1-1
2     TEST-1   2012-4-3
3     TEST-2   2012-2-3
4     TEST-2   2012-6-4

what query do i use to get the result

ID    NAME     DATE
2     TEST-1   2012-4-3
4     TEST-2   2012-6-4

I want it to GROUP BY name, and show the one with the max ID?
Is there a query i can use to do this, my sql skills are very basic.
