I have a database application that has one master table with 3 slaves. They are linked together by the common field of title. How can I delete a record from the master table and have the corresponding titles deleted from the other tables?

Thanks
JE

Which database are you using?  Some databases do support this kind of referential integrity, and will delete the records for you if you set it up to do so.

Paradox, Oracle and Informix support Cascade Deleting.
Also you can use Table1.BeforeDelete event.
