I have a query that tells me which codes to delete from a table, how do I create a delete query when there is a join? The table TblCWCodesForUnmatch contains all [mvris cides] that have been deleted since last month but of course there are not all represented in the AbiToMvris table but they need to be deleted form the AbiToMvris nonetheless.

regards in advance

SELECT TblCWCodesForUnmatch.[MVRIS CODE], AbiToMvris.[MVRIS CODE]
FROM AbiToMvris LEFT JOIN TblCWCodesForUnmatch ON AbiToMvris.[MVRIS CODE] = TblCWCodesForUnmatch.[MVRIS CODE]
WHERE (((TblCWCodesForUnmatch.[MVRIS CODE]) Is Not Null));

Backup first and then try this..


Delete * from AbiToMVRS where exists
(Select [mvris code] from TblCWCodesForUnmatch where TblCWCodesForUnmatch.[mvris code] = abitomvrs.[mvris code])
