Could someone have a look at my below delete statements and inform me how I could modify them (so that they work :)) to include the inner join and where not exists. At the moment I get the error 'Server: Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 3
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'INNER'

My code:



DELETE
FROM          dbo.BTaxProprietor
INNER JOIN
                      dbo.BTaxBusiness ON dbo.BTaxProprietor.lBusinessID = dbo.BTaxBusiness.lBusinessID INNER JOIN
                      dbo.Partnership ON dbo.BTaxProprietor.lPartnershipID = dbo.Partnership.PClientid
WHERE NOT EXISTS(SELECT PClientid from PartnershipClients as pc
                 where  pc.PClientid = dbo.Partnership.PClientid)


DELETE
FROM         dbo.BTaxBusiness INNER JOIN
                      dbo.BTaxProprietor ON dbo.BTaxBusiness.lBusinessID = dbo.BTaxProprietor.lBusinessID INNER JOIN
                      dbo.Partnership ON dbo.BTaxProprietor.lPartnershipID = dbo.Partnership.PClientid
WHERE NOT EXISTS(SELECT PClientid from PartnershipClients as pc
                 where  pc.PClientid = dbo.Partnership.PClientid)

DELETE
FROM         dbo.BTaxAccountingPeriod INNER JOIN
                      dbo.BTaxProprietor ON dbo.BTaxBusiness.lBusinessID = dbo.BTaxProprietor.lBusinessID INNER JOIN
                      dbo.Partnership ON dbo.BTaxProprietor.lPartnershipID = dbo.Partnership.PClientid INNER JOIN
                      dbo.BTaxAccountingPeriod ON dbo.BTaxBusiness.lBusinessID = dbo.BTaxAccountingPeriod.lBusinessID
WHERE     (NOT EXISTS
                          (SELECT     PClientid
                            FROM          PartnershipClients AS pc
                            WHERE      pc.PClientid = dbo.Partnership.PClientid))
