trying to get field with the earliest date from custom object. Here is my current query
BomaGroups = [SELECT Name, Location__c FROM Group__c WHERE Location__c =:id]; // Selects the Group I want from Location Master object MeetingsList2 = [SELECT Name, Group__c, Business_Value__c, Meeting_Date__c, GPS_Meeting_Location__Latitude__s, GPS_Meeting_Location__Longitude__s, Group__r.Name FROM Meeting__c WHERE Group__c =:BomaGroups ORDER BY Meeting_Date__c DESC LIMIT 1]; // Selects Meetings I want with the Groups SOQL as the where clause
I have 3 custom objects, Location(master), Groups(child), meeting(grand child). The above query works fine for getting 1 record but its supposed to return only the earliest date values for all the records matching the where clause. I was thinking of inserting an SOQL statement in the where clause for minimum date, any clues?
Tried the following subquery to combine the 2 statements, generated Error: Didn't understand relationship 'Group__r'
BomaGroupsList = [select Name, Location__c, (SELECT Name, Group__c, Business_Value__c, Meeting_Date__c, GPS_Meeting_Location__Latitude__s,GPS_Meeting_Location__Longitude__s FROM Group__r ORDER BY Meeting_Date__c DESC LIMIT 1) FROM Group__c WHERE Location__c =:id];
Your limit 1 in the original query applied to the whole of the result set and therefore only returned 1 record. By using a sub-query you can get the records that relate to the groupIds you need. I have guessed at the lookup relationship api name being Meetings__r - this may need adjusting.
