Delete SQL query

I have an SQL database with two tables. The one stores homework IDs and the students that homewoek has been assigned to. The other contains a list of students and their classes:

tblHomework
=========
Homework_ID
Student_ID

tblStudents
=======
Student_ID
Class_ID

tblHomework.Student_ID is linked to tblStudents.Student_ID

I need an SQL query that will delete all rows in tblHomework that contain a specific homework (lets say Homework_ID = 1) and which is assigned to students from a specific class (lets say Class_ID = 2). In other words, something like: DELETE * FROM tblHomework WHERE Homework_ID = 1 AND STUDENT IN Class_ID = 2

Any ideas? I'm battling to get it to work.

Thanks

Hi SETP,

Delete From tblHomework H Inner Join tblStudents S On H.Student_ID = S.[ID] Where H.Homework_ID = 1 And S.Class_ID = 2

Should do it.

Delete From tblHomework
Where Homework_ID = 1 and StudentID in (select StudentID from tblStudents where Class_ID = 2)


That's how I'd do it.

Thanks for all your replies.

TimCottee, I get the following error message with your solution:
    Incorrect syntax near 'H'

badalpatel, I get the following error message with your solution:
    Msg 107, Level 16, State 2, Procedure proc_Delete_Assessment_Assignment_Per_Class, Line 18
    The column prefix 'H' does not match with a table name or alias name used in the query.
    Msg 107, Level 16, State 2, Procedure proc_Delete_Assessment_Assignment_Per_Class, Line 18
    The column prefix 'S' does not match with a table name or alias name used in the query.

prajapati84, yours worked!

jay_gadhavi and thrill_house, I didn't try yours since prajapati84's solution worked.
