    Not familiar with Oracle but my understanding is that you want something such as :

    SELECT MAX(ID_DATE+TIME) FROM Table GROUP BY LEFT(ID_DATE,5) which should show :


    the problem being that your first column store both an id and a date while date and time that should work together are splitted.
