Hi Experts

I populate a sql server 2008 DB table from SAP using a web service in C#.net 2010 and when that tables gets populated i want to be able to see if another table has a certain field(PART NUMBER) that matches the populated table from SAP and if matches then remove row from populated SAP table?

Thanks

try any of these. Make sure that you have the backup of this table before running the DELETE command in case if you want to retain the data.
DELETE FROM AnotherTable 
      WHERE Part_Number IN (SELECT Part_Number 
                              FROM SAP_Table);

Open in new window

DELETE FROM AnotherTable 
      WHERE EXISTS (SELECT 1 
                      FROM SAP_Table 
                     WHERE AnotherTable.Part_Number = SAP_Table.Part_Number);

Open in new window
