I think i dont understand your question. Are you useing BY DATE field? If you have hidden sort fields? Are you using developer studio to write this report? I dev studio you can uncheck repete sorted value or in code you can see if BY DISPLAY OFF?

Ok I assume you have the sort correctly, so what you want is the 1st record.
add the following to your report.
COMPUTE GOODREC/A1=IF FIELDNAME NE LAST FIELDNAME THEN 'Y'
REPEAT THIS OVER AND OVER TO INCLUDE ALL YOUR SORT FIELDS
ELSE 'N'; NOPRINT

.
.
.
.
WHERE TOTAL GOODREC EQ 'Y';
