Hi there

I am trying to delete an entry in a MySQL table using a LINKED Server from SQL Server, but I am getting the error:  "Binary logging not possible. Message: Transaction level 'READ-COMMITTED' in InnoDB is not safe for binlog mode 'STATEMENT'".

I can select data from the linked MySQL server fine, and I am using OLE DB  Provider for ODBC Drivers and using MySQL ODBC driver v

MySQL is version 5.1.51, SQL Server is SQL Server 2005

Code I am using is:

declare @table_id int
set @table_id = 1

delete from OPENQUERY(mysqltest, 'select * from testtable')
where TABLE_ID =  @table_id
