Hi Friends,

It would be really great if some body help me to resolve the following problem.

I have two tables as follows
Table A
Code:
ColA1,ColA2,ColA3,COLA4,COLA5

Table B
Code:
ColB1,ColB2,ColB3,COLB4,COLB5 ...till COLB10

i need to write a delete query which should delete the records from TableA with the following conditions.
Code:
ColA1 = ColB1
ColA2 = ColB2
ColA3 = ColB3

I tried to use INNER JOIN but failed and got -199 SQLCODE for JOIN keyword.


Thanks & Regards,
Mallik

Hi,
DELETE FROM Table A
where ColA1 = ColB1
and ColA2 = ColB2
and ColA3 = ColB3
will do a favour

will not work ColB1 ColB2 ColB3 are not actual values (literal here i mean)
It should be matched using join

Anand,

The OP is trying to join Table A and Table B and it's not a single table.

DELETE FROM TableA ,TableB
WHERE (ColA1= ColB1,
ColA2=ColB2,
ColA3=COlB3);

This query does not work. That is the conclusion of this discussion.

The query which works has already been posted.

Small modification to the query

DELETE FROM TableA ,TableB
WHERE (TABLEA.ColA1= TABLEA.ColB1,
TABLEA.ColA2=TABLEB.ColB2,
TABLEA.ColA3=TABLEB.COlB3);

This will surely works
