Delete from a table a string of specific values

I know I am close on this but how do I delete values from a table (where the key identifier is in a linked table)?

This is what I have but I get I am missing something...

DELETE *
FROM Tbl_ClientFlightControl
WHERE Location IN (SELECT Location FROM tbl_regions WHERE Region Like "Asia Only" Or "EMEA Only" Or "EMEA and Asia" Or "N/A");

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You haven't properly formed the conditional statements.

DELETE *
FROM Tbl_ClientFlightControl
WHERE Location IN (SELECT Location FROM tbl_regions WHERE Region Like "Asia Only" Or Region Like "EMEA Only" Or Region Like "EMEA and Asia" Or Region Like "N/A");

Open in new window


Note that a condition such as

Region Like "Asia Only"

is effectively the same as:

Region = "Asia Only"

If your intent is "contains 'Asia Only'", you would write it like this:

Region Like "*Asia Only*"

(note the use of wild cards)
