How do I delete all rows in a table based on another table within Microsoft Access?
I'm trying some of the SQL statements online but they work mostly with SQL Server.

What's the proper syntax to get that working?
=============
I tried this using the Design Query first and then changing it to Delete - but it says could not delete from specified tables.

DELETE Jobs.*
FROM [DeleteThese] INNER JOIN [Jobs] ON DeleteThese.JobTicket = Jobs.JobTicket;
====================

I tried this directly in the SQL View (due to the online SQL searches) but it says specify the table containing the records you want to delete.

DELETE FROM DeleteThese INNER JOIN Jobs ON DeleteThese.JobTicket = Jobs.JobTicket;
