After retrieved the above result and i want to get the SUM of each outstanding

  • So, you want the row with the latest PurchaseDate for each SupplierName from your Results? Your tags indicate both SQL2008 and SQL2014. Does the solution have to run on both? Jun 19, 2019 at 19:09

Based on your images, something like this should run on SQL Server 2008.

(It's not completely tested because I didn't want to have to type all that data from your screenprints.)

;WITH _cte
AS (
    SELECT PurchaseId
    FROM BASE_Purchase
SELECT PurchaseId
FROM _cte c
WHERE PurchaseDate = (
        SELECT max(PurchaseDate)
        FROM _cte
        WHERE SupplierName = c.SupplierName
