Help with Access SQL Statement

I have an event procedure within an Access application that has the following query:

DoCmd.RunSQL "Delete * FROM [Payments] WHERE [Payments].OrderID = [Orders].OrderID AND [Orders].CustomerID = " & CustomerNumber & ";"

When it gets to this statement, it keeps prompting me for "[Orders].OrderID".  Orders is a table in the database, and OrderID is the Primary key in that table.

for the life of me I cannot see what is wrong with this statement.

Can someone please help.

Thanks...Tom

But it doesn't know what [orders].orderid is.  I suspect that it's a field on your form somewhere?  If so, use the control name instead.  You'll need to do the same for the other items in your WHERE clause.

Hi tpigielski,

Is this what you want?

DoCmd.RunSQL "Delete * FROM [Payments] WHERE [Payments].OrderID IN (SELECT [Orders].OrderID FROM [Orders] WHERE [Orders].CustomerID = " & CustomerNumber & ");"

Do hope there must be a textbox/combo box having data of orders.orderid , customerid, put that control instead of orders.orderid, if your textbox/combo box havign data of orders,orderid is txtorderid and customerid is txtcustomerid, then use the sql qry like this :

DoCmd.RunSQL "Delete * FROM [Payments] WHERE [Payments].OrderID = txtorderid AND [Payments].customerid = " & CustomerNumber & ";"
