Hello all,

I am needing to run a query to delete an entry from the table dbo.MERC_SITE and am not sure how to go about it.  

I know to use this query when I need to change the SITE_ID from one to another when a mistake happens:

use poswest
update dbo.MERC_SITE
set SITE_ID='A5532592'--New Site ID you wish to have.
Where SITE_ID='A5532592'--Old Site ID you are replacing.

But I am not sure how to use a query to delete an entry.  Can someone help me with this?

DELETE FROM dbo.MERC_SITE WHERE Where SITE_ID='A5532592'

Open in new window

Or to make life easy on yourself, bundle the whole thing in a transaction, to make sure both statements succeed or fail together:
BEGIN TRAN tr

update dbo.MERC_SITE
set SITE_ID='A5532592'--New Site ID you wish to have.
Where SITE_ID='A5532592_old'--Old Site ID you are replacing.

DELETE FROM dbo.MERC_SITE Where SITE_ID='A5532592_old'

COMMIT TRAN tr

Open in new window
