    Hi,

    I have problem deleting records from table depending on data from another
    table.
    So, I need to delete records where ID and YEAR is equal to ID and YEAR from
    another table.

    When I create query and join relation between this two fields , accees tells
    me that "Operation must use an updatable query"??


    Here is SQL text:

    DELETE SubOrd.*
    FROM SubOrd INNER JOIN ZahtjevniceSubZaBrisati ON (SubOrd.YEAR=
    ZahtjevniceSubZaBrisati.YEAR)
    AND (SubOrd.ID = ZahtjevniceSubZaBrisati.ID);



    Thanks a lot!

    Try a subquery:

    DELETE FROM SubOrd
    WHERE EXISTS (
    SELECT ZahtjevniceSubZaBrisati.ID
    FROM ZahtjevniceSubZaBrisati
    WHERE ZahtjevniceSubZaBrisati.YEAR = SubOrd.YEAR
    AND ZahtjevniceSubZaBrisati.ID = SubOrd.ID);
