Hello Experts,  I have an Access 2003 table that has a field called period which contains 2 digit numbers.  I.e 25,26,27,28,29,etc...etc...  I need a SQL statement that will remove the records based on the 2 digit number.  I.e remove 25, 27, 29 etc...etc.  Can someone please help?  Thanks!

Are you saying, for example, that you have a record with a period of 25 and other records that also contain a period of 25 and you wish to remove the duplicates (i.e. all but one record with a period of 25)?

No I have two different records in the period field one is 25 and the other is 27 the rest of the data in the table is a duplicate except for the 25 and 27.  I would like to remove all of the 27 records.
