    How do you delete all records from multiple tables in query design view. I
    have several tables that i just want to remove all records at once from a
    delete query and i receive a specify table of the records to be deleted!

    You might try this (if the data in multiple tables are related) -- Tools >>
    Relationships >> Right-Click to show Tables -- add Tables, and establish a
    join amongst them, then Right-Click on the Join >> Edit Relationships, and
    choose "Cascade Delete Related Records"
