    I would like to delete some records, however, when I try to do so I can't
    because there are related tables. For example: I have a table for clients
    and another table for members. So they are related. Is there an easy way to
    delete all information for a person in the client table and member table?

    Set the Cascade Delete option on in the relationship and then delete the
    Record in the "One"/Parent Table and JET will automatically delete the
    related Records in the "Many"/Child Table.

    Alternatively, you will need to delete the related Records in the "Many" /
    Child Table first before you can delete the corresponding "One" / Parent
    Record since you have set the Referential Integrity on the relationship.
