Subj:   Group by on one column but select multiple columns

How do I write the following query with out a derived table. I want to get the maximum last_dt for a corresponding emp_name. Then I also want to display emp_id for a emp_name and last_dt. I am doing it like this. But becaz of the table size, I am getting spool space error frequently. How can I do it efficiently. My other choice to avoid spool space was to create a volatile table instead of derived table.

     select emp_name, emp_id, last_dt
     employee K1,
     select emp_id, max(last_dt)
     from employee
     group by 1
     ) K2(emp_id, max_last_dt)
     K1.emp_id = K2.emp_id
     K1.last_dt = K2.last_dt;
