I have source and target tables, both having Timestamp column in them. I would like to select all the rows from Source table which have higher Timestamp than max(Target_Timestamp). As it is a timestamp column, I am having problems with this. Can anyone please help me. Thank you!!

The data type is TIMESTAMP or is it a datetime "timestamp?"

If the data type is TIMESTAMP, then I don't think you can guarantee that the next value in the sequence is Larger.

timestamp has no relationship with date or time. Its just a rowversion info which is added by sql server.
