Last Modified: 2016-08-22
The SQL Statement below returns data that for absolute sure...
Any row number > 1 is a dup record

What is the most efficient way to delet those records from the table?
There are no foreign keys etc...

SELECT      SalesSiteToChannelID,
            ChannelID ,
            SalesSiteID,
            ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY SalesSiteID ORDER BY ChannelID, SalesSiteID) AS RowNumber
FROM      ewSalesSitesToChannels
