DELETE QUERY not working.

Tony asked
Last Modified: 2020-02-09

I am using MS-ACCESS as a front end.  MySql as Back end.

I have a DELETE query, to delete the content of a Table (No conditionals on the query at all, so delete all the records in the table).

But for some reason, the query is deleting all the records, except one record.   I executed the DEL query again an still not able to delete that specific row or record.

Also, the table shows #delete# in all the fields if I open the table, but if I refresh the table, the same record appears again.

Please advise.
Thank you.
