I have searched the internet and copied in at least 7 solutions that are advertised around, but I simply cannot get it to work.  

Problem:  I have 100,000 rows in a database - all with a date field populated.  I want to delete all rows if the date is older than 14 days.  Among many attempts, this was my last, but the SQL is bad.  Any thoughts for a legit solution that actually works :)

DELETE * FROM hours WHERE ADJAPPLYDTM < DATE_SUB( 2013-12-30, INTERVAL 14 DAY )

I would paste all the others I tried, but it wouldn't do any good at this point since they didn't work and I don't remember them.
