SQL Script to Remove Data from Two Joined Tables

jspc used Ask the Experts™

I have two Tables in my SQL Database


I want to remove data from both tables.

They are linked as follows:
Products.UniqueID = PSuppliers.ProductID

Are you able to help me write a script to remove data from the Products table where the Products.Code = ‘AAA’ and in the related data PSuppliers Table where they are linked by PSuppliers.ProductID?

You could do this with two separate delete statements:
delete from PSuppliers where exists (select 1 from Products where Code = 'AAA' and UniqueID = PSuppliers.ProductID)

Delete from Products where Code = 'AAA'
