Hey,

I have column in a table which contains numbers. How can I retrieve the max value from that column? Do I have to use rawsql-query or is it possible to do with Dataobject::get?

Thanks in advance!

$iMax = DB::query("SELECT MAX(\"Field\") FROM \"DataObjectClassName\"")->value();

Is the ID somewhere stored in the database?

I meant the maximum ID, where is that stored in the database?
Or is it stored somewhere else?

Sorry for not being precise enough...
