I am trying to delete a set of records from a table using the following VBA, but it tells me to "specify the table containing the records I want to delete"...this also happens when I try to execute a normal query (without using VBA)

doCmd.RunSQL ("DELETE tblGrpDetails.dtlIDx, tblGrpDetails.dtlGroupLu, tblGrpDetails.dtlJobLu
FROM tblGrpDetails INNER JOIN TablesChosen ON tblGrpDetails.dtlJobLu = TablesChosen.TableName;

Try this
doCmd.RunSQL ("DELETE tblGrpDetails.*
FROM tblGrpDetails INNER JOIN TablesChosen ON tblGrpDetails.dtlJobLu = TablesChosen.TableName;

And in design view drag the asterisk from the field name list of the table whose records you wish to delete into the grid

don't know how that would work, I'll try at the office on Monday.

I don't know if you caught it but my topic/title had nothing to do with the question, that's because I was going to ask another question, but changed and forgot to change the topic.

Anyway, my point is that I fixed not only the origional problem, but because that problem was fixed I solved this problem but not needing to delete a join query, because I pass each record to the parameter query.  If you're interested I'll post the code how I did it, I don't know if you are familiar with using VBA w/ parameter queries, I had a tough couple of days trouble shooting this one.

I wondered about the question title, but concentrated on the actual question.

I have used VBA with parameter queries extensively.
