Project Description


I am implementing basic employee time management functionality where I need your help in creating a data base query to

look up last action performed by the user. I have never done any SQL programming so your help would be appreciated.

My Table is: TimeCards

Id int primarykey,notnull

TimeStamp datetime notnull

Action tinyint not null,

User_Id int FK ([url removed, login to view], not null)

I have a class TimeCardEntry as below

class TimeCardEntry : IEntity


enum TimeCardAction


None = 0,

ClockIn = 1,

ClockOut = 2;


public TimeCardEntry(User user, TimeCardAction action)


_user = user;

Action = (int)action;

TimeStamp = [url removed, login to view];


public int Id { get; set; }

public int Action { get; set;}

public DateTime TimeStamp { get; set;}

public User User { get { return _user; } set { _user = value; }

private User _user;


I need to retrieve a last entry from TimeCards table where

1. [url removed, login to view]

2. [url removed, login to view] > [url removed, login to view] (Basically last entry today 12:00 AM)

I tried following function but getting exception.

TimeCardEntry GetLastTimeCardEntry(User user)


var entry = [url removed, login to view](x=> x, (x=> [url removed, login to view] == [url removed, login to view] && ([url removed, login to view]([url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view]) > 0)).Last()

return entry;
