I am using Query analyzer which i use to maipulate and update numerous database tables found on a server. I have a table with stock numbers e.g C87676-001 that also has numerous other columns, an example of one is the planner notes column. These stock numbers occur 2 or 3 times over and the copys have incomplete information that needs to be deleted. e.g. One entry of C87676-001 may have all information available in the columns then the next entry of C87676-001 may have the same info in every column except the planner notes column when it has a NULL value. This record will be the one that we delete.
I used the following statement
DELETE FROM dbo.vw_linc_mrp
WHERE Stock_Nbr like 'C87676-001' AND [Planner notes] like 'NULL'
this should work though in this case i get the following error....
The view or function 'dbo.vw_linc_mrp' is not updatable because the definition contains the TOP clause.
