Currently, I can make the straight-up SQL query on my DB:
SELECT MAX(bar) FROM table_name
And it returns with the max value in that table. When I make what I consider to be an equivalent call in Rails, however, it does not work. I am calling:
Bar.all(:select => "Max(bar)")
This simply returns with:
In the column I'm calling on is a series of identifying numbers, I'm looking for the largest one. Is there some other way of accessing this in Rails?
