Hi,
Is there a way we can delete from 1 table joining 2 tables.

I know to delete based on joining 1 table as below

Code:
DELETE TABLE1
FROM TABLE1 A
JOIN TABLE 2 B
ON A.COLUMN1 = B.COLUMN1
AND A.COLUMN2 = B.COLUMN2


Now if I want to delete from TABLE1 joining TABLE2 and TABLE3 how do I achieve.

Thanks in advance

Hello,

Needs clarification.

Show some "starting" rows from the tables and what should remain after your process is executed.

Huzefa,

You cannot do joins in DELETE statement in DB2.

Try this,
Code:
delete from table1 a
where exists
 (
  select 1 from table2 b
  where a.column1 = b.column1 and a.column2 = b.column2
 )
;


Thanks,
Sushanth
