i have my database name DataEntries.DB
with fields 1:KeyCode (Autoincremental)
            2:BatchNo (STring)
            3:Descripton

My question is how can i delete all records
having a BatchNo = '044' using the Tquery component?

here is some example of my code, it returns
"invalid token"

Procedure DeleteAll(thetablename:twwtable;thedatasource:Twwdatasource;fieldname,deletestring:string);
begin

fmastermodule.query1.Active:=false;

fmastermodule.query1.SQL.Text:= 'delete '+thetablename.TableName+' where '+fieldname+' = '''+deletestring+'''';

fmastermodule.query1.ExecSQL;


**Can anybody give me some GOOD CODE for this?

seems to me that your SQL statement is missing the word "from"..

Example:

var table:string;
begin
  table:='Clients';
Query1.Sql.add('delete  from '+Table+' where  LAST_Name= ''Jones''');
  Query1.execsql;
end;





Good luck!!

Kotan,
  I cannot tell you how many times I have had the same thing happen to me. I'll reply only to have someone else collect the points. In my defense however, I have to say that girlswants_me's question DID specifiy that he/she was looking for a code example, which I supplied and you didn't. Granted, I understood what you meant, but strictly speaking it did not answer the question posed.


Good luck!!
