I am trying to delete 1 whole row from each of 13 tables. There may or may not be a row to delete, in some of the tables. My sql below does not work. Do I have to inner join all 13 tables? The example below just has six tables. Thanks.

                                    
"DELETE
FROM one on
INNER JOIN two tw
ON on.id = tw.id
INNER JOIN three th
ON tw.id = th.id
INNER JOIN four fo
ON th.id = fo.id
INNER JOIN five fi
ON fo.id = fi.id
INNER JOIN six si
ON fi.id = si.id
WHERE id = ?";
