Hi,
I have a table TEST with some columns
ID  BOX    MESSAGE
1     20     ABC
2     20     ABC
3     20     ABC
4     21    ABC
The ID is an identity but is not known by the application
so I like something like:
delete top1 from TEST where box = 20 order by ID.
So in this case it means that the row with the ID # 1 will be deleted
thnx
