I tried "DELETE FROM view WHERE field=N'value'" but it gives me this:

view is not updatable because the modification affects multiple base tables.

I don't know where the view takes the records from.

Why don't you post the View and we may be able to help you more.

What the error message is suggesting to you is that DELETE can only operate on one table at a time.
