How to select the last record of a table in SQL?

This is a sample code to select all records from a table. Can someone show me how to select the last record of that table?

select * from table


When I use:
SELECT * FROM TABLE ORDER BY ID DESC LIMIT

I get this error: Line 1: Incorrect syntax near 'LIMIT'.
This is the code I use:

private void LastRecord()
{
SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["HELPDESK_OUTLOOKConnectionString3"].ToString());

conn.Open();
SqlDataReader myReader = null;
SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM HD_AANVRAGEN ORDER BY " +
"aanvraag_id DESC LIMIT 1", conn);
myReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader();
while (myReader.Read())
{
TextBox1.Text = (myReader["aanvraag_id"].ToString());
TextBox1.Text += (myReader["wijziging_nummer"].ToString());
TextBox1.Text += (myReader["melding_id"].ToString());
TextBox1.Text += (myReader["aanvraag_titel"].ToString());
TextBox1.Text += (myReader["aanvraag_omschrijving"].ToString());
TextBox1.Text += (myReader["doorlooptijd_id"].ToString());
TextBox1.Text += (myReader["rapporteren"].ToString());
TextBox1.Text += (myReader["werknemer_id"].ToString());
TextBox1.Text += (myReader["outlook_id"].ToString());
}
}

Answer

Without any further information, which Database etc the best we can do is something like

Sql Server

SELECT TOP 1 * FROM Table ORDER BY ID DESC

MySql

SELECT * FROM Table ORDER BY ID DESC LIMIT 1
