Remove DataTable Entries

I have two DataTables, A and B. Both have the primary key "CID". How do I
remove all entries in Table A from Table B (with the same PK)?

Hi Michael. Also, DataTable.Selec t( string) should work...
[But I'm not sure if it works on just the primary key field or all columns in the data row because it returns an array of datarows...]

To delete a row from a DataTable, just call the "Delete" method on the
DataRow you want to delete. Do NOT call "DataTable.Rows .Remove(datarow
dr)". The Remove method of the DataRowCollecti on only removes it from the
collection, which will not be queued for deletion from the database.

As for how you determine what to delete? As far as I know, there is no
automated way to determine which records have the same field values (PK or
otherwise) in two tables?

My intial idea would be to loop through one table, and for each item check
for an item of the same PK value in the second table. If one exists, call
the Delete method on it as I noted above.

DataTable dtA = ...;
DataTable dtB = ...;
for (int i=0; i < dtA.Count; i++)
DataRow drA = dtA.Rows[i];
object pkA = ... primary key value in drA ...
DataRow drFound = dtB.Rows.Find(p kA);
if (drFound != null)
drFound.Delete( );

I haven't run this code, I just made it up from looking at the help. In
theory, it should work. For details look at the help on DataTable,
DataRowCollecti on, and DataRow.

All, Is it possible to use PHP to open/read a TXT file (i.e. IP.TXT) that contains ip addresses (1 per line), remove any duplicates found, and re-write the file back out to IP_NEW.TXT ? The reason is, I have ips coming from several sources, i.e. URLSCAN logs, MySQL dbs, etc. and I can use a DISTINCT on the individual queries, but I then combine all the results into 1 file which may contain duplicates. Thanks.

DB2 Enterprise Server Edition, version 8.1 (fixpack 6a) on Windows 2003. Is there a command to remove old entries both from Journal or old storage snapshots. Storage snapshots is saved in the systools schema of the database, and old entries in Journal are in the toolsdb. So it should be possible to write SQL that removes old entries for both of these. Has anybody found out how to do this ? Regards Odd Bjørn Andersen ErgoGroup Oslo,...

I have a database being populated by hits to a program on a server. The problem is each client connection may require a few hits in a 1-2 second time frame. This is resulting in multiple database entries - all exactly the same, except the event_id field, which is auto-numbered. I need a way to query the record w/out duplicates. That is, any records exactly the same except event_id should only return one record. Is this possible??
