I have two tables joined by a composite key. (COMPANY_CD and RR_CD).
I want to delete all records from Table 1 where the record on Table 2 has a NULL value for e-mail address.

i.e.
DELETE [100_Outlook_Contacts].*, Missing_IA_Codes.[E-mail address]
FROM 100_Outlook_Contacts INNER JOIN Missing_IA_Codes ON ([100_Outlook_Contacts].RR_CD = Missing_IA_Codes.RR_CD) AND ([100_Outlook_Contacts].COMPANY_CD = Missing_IA_Codes.COMPANY_CD)
WHERE (((Missing_IA_Codes.[E-mail address]) Is Null));
