> drop table if exists tbl1,tbl2;
> create table tbl1 (col_1a tinyint, col_1b smallint, col_1c int, col_1d bigint, col_1e char(10) not null);
> insert into tbl1 values (0,1,1,7,"a");
> insert into tbl1 values (0,1,2,8,"b");
> insert into tbl1 values (0,1,3,9,"c");
> insert into tbl1 values (0,1,4,10,"D");
> insert into tbl1 values (0,1,5,11,"a");
> insert into tbl1 values (0,1,6,12,"c");

> select max(col_1d) from tbl1;
+-------------+
| max(col_1d) |
