Having a problem getting a unique item and a min date for that object.
Any suggestions. I have a cursor with a number of items (repeat
several times with different dates. Need to be able to get a list of
item so the only appear once and have the earliest date. I'm at a
lost with the except of during a sort to a database and then doing a
unique index. But don't want to have to resort to that for speed
reasons. I'm running visual fox pro 6.

Thanks Charles
