Hi

I am trying to figure out how to print one of same-named pieces of software from my database. I'll explain further.

I have a list of software to show people what has been recently updated.

For example in my database I have the following columns.

id, name, version, link, description, dateadded, category

and this is my code to query and print the records:

PHP Code:
    $query=("SELECT * FROM software ORDER BY name ASC");
    
$result=mysql_query($query) or die('Sorry, could not get software at this time '.mysql_error());
        while(
$row=mysql_fetch_array($result))  {

            
$id=$row['id'];
            
$name=$row['name'];
            
$version=$row['version'];
            
$link=$row['link'];
            
$description=$row['description'];
            
$dateadded=$row['dateadded'];
            
$category=$row['category'];

echo 
"<div id=\"softwaredistro_page_main\">";
echo 
"$name"&nbsp<a href=\"singlesoftwarepiece.inc.php?id=$id&name=$name&version=$version&url=$link&description=$description&category=$category\"/>go</a>" "<br>";

This code works well to print out my records. Now here is the problem. I have some pieces of software that have been updated and entered into my database a two or three times so I end up with:

(For example):

Calibre
Evolution
Evolution
Opera Web Browser
Opera Web Browser
And so on...

How do I query, if it is done in the query, obtain only the most recently updated version of a piece of software so I end up with:

Calibre
Evolution
Opera Web Browser
And so on...

I want to keep all versions, so deleting an old one is not something I want o do.

And, lastly, I did try to use LIMIT clause in my query with no success. Otherwise, I am just stumped.

Thanks in advance,
Randy
