in reply to MySQL question

To get the highest number, you can just order by version in descending order:

SELECT title, doc_num ORDER by version DESC

Or is there a particular reason you want to use MAX?

Also, if you just want the one with the latest version, then you can use the LIMIT clause to get only one result:

SELECT title, doc_num ORDER by version DESC LIMIT 1
