I'm trying to figure out how to set up a dependency in SQL Server 2005. Basically I have an "orders" table and then a "order details" table. I've had this DB for quite a while and it's getting massive and I need to do a major cleanup. When I delete an Order, I want it to delete all the Order Details for that order as well even though they are stored in another table.

Is there an easy way to set it up in SQL? I'm building an ASP page that will remove old orders. I was hoping that SQL could "know" how to remove the Order Details as well without me having to build code for it.
