I use the SQL below to see the records I want to delete.  How can I delete the records that my SQL displays?
SELECT *
FROM `Group_Members`
INNER JOIN `Member` ON `Member`.`ID` = `Group_Members`.`MemberID`
WHERE `Group_Members`.`GroupID` = '6'
AND `Member`.`UserSuspended` = '1'
LIMIT 0 , 30

Open in new window

hi

This should do the trick but please try it on a test database first
DELETE a
FROM Group_Members a
inner join Member b
ON a.MemberID = b.ID  
WHERE
a.GroupID = '6'
AND b.UserSuspended = '1'

Open in new window
