You need to write a query that will write the final query for you.

select concat('delete from ' ,  table_name , ' Where CCUID = ''BLAH'';') from information_schema.tables where table_schema = 'MyDBName' and table_name like 'pfsense_%';

Open in new window


Paste the results of that query into a text editor to take off the | symbols.

then run that as your query.
