Access Database table with duplicate data

Conernesto asked
Last Modified: 2019-12-04
I have a table called MonthlyRateChanges. The table has 8 fields. Below is sample of my data. The first row are the field names. I want to delete records that are the same based on the first six fields. The two records below are the same for the first six fields. How can  I delete the whole record if the records are the same? From below both records would be deleted as the first six fields are the same.
