Delete with WHERE Clause.

Delete with WHERE Clause.

(OP)
Need some help here. Why is this not working?

DELETE FROM HR_021_Isolates_Records_For_Anniversary_Reset_Table WHERE HR_021_Isolates_Records_For_Anniversary_Reset_Table.Code="Unpaid" AND HR_021_Isolates_Records_For_Anniversary_Reset_Table.UTimeTaken=Null AND HR_021_Isolates_Records_For_Anniversary_Reset_Table.OFTimeTaken=Null;

RE: Delete with WHERE Clause.

Jet SQL requires DELETE * FROM instead of DELETE FROM that works for most other versions of SQL.

RE: Delete with WHERE Clause.

In addition to Axworthy’s reply, you shouldn’t use "=Null". Always use "is Null".

CODE -->

HR_021_Isolates_Records_For_Anniversary_Reset_Table.UTimeTaken is Null AND
HR_021_Isolates_Records_For_Anniversary_Reset_Table.OFTimeTaken is Null;

RE: Delete with WHERE Clause.

To see the record(s) you want to Delete, it is beneficial to Select them first just to make sure you will delete record(s) you want:
If you do:

SELECT
* FROM HR_021_Isolates_Records_For_Anniversary_Reset_Table
WHERE Code = "Unpaid"
AND UTimeTaken Is Null
AND OFTimeTaken Is Null;

and if that looks OK, then just change Select to Delete

Thanks you both. I must of copied and pasted the code incorrectly I did have DELETE * in there but fixing the null did the trick.
