MySQL has no Last() function. You need a subquery (eg SELECT MAX(cost) 
FROM CompVendorListTbl WHERE componentid=returntbl.componentid), or one 
of the tricks described at,
or one of the tricks described under 'Within-Group Aggregates' at

Surround date literals with '', not ##. MySQL will not expect a US date 
format unless you apply explicit formatting.
