I have a table of duplicate entries in a Master table. I have saved those I wish to delete in the duplicate table.  How would I go about deleting those in the duplicate table from those in the Master table?

What are the names of the tables, and the names of the primary keys (I assume they are the same between the two)?

Then it is:

Delete Table1.* from Table1
INNER JOIN Table2 ON Table1.PK = Table2.PK;
