    Question

    I am writing a program that needs to delete data across multiple tables.

    is there a way with a SQL command to delete records from more than one table.

    this is what i am trying to do:

    DELETE FROM REQUESTS, REQUEST_ITEMS WHERE REQUESTS.REQID = 1 and REQUEST_ITEMS.REQID = 1;

    but I keep getting errors. I am using Oracle 9i.

    Thanks,

    I can't change the way the database works, so please only answers that wuld have a solution with SQL.

    You should be getting errors. You can only delete from one table at a time. That is how Oracle works.

    Why does the delete have to be in or on one line?

    I guess I don't really need the delete in a single statement.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
