Turning this select statement into a delete statement

1 New Member
I need to turn this select statement into a delete statemen. In other words, I want the results of the select statement deleted from the tables. I have never used a delete statement with a minus command. Can anyone help.

SELECT item, ispecyr from itemlist where ispecyr = 79
minus
select b.piitem, a.cpspecyr from
contproj a, projitem b
where a.pcn = b.pcn
and cpspecyr = 79


Thanks.

Why does this select query return the correct records but when I make it a delete query I get a msgbox with "Could not delete from specified tables". SELECT BMIDLog.* FROM stageBMIDLog INNER JOIN BMIDLog ON (BMIDLog.BattID = stageBMIDLog.BattID) AND (BMIDLog.VehicleID = stageBMIDLog.VehicleID) AND (BMIDLog.TotalChgAhs = stageBMIDLog.TotalChgAhs) DELETE BMIDLog.*

I had a macro that ran a parameter query and created and opened an Excel file with the system date as part of the file name, but I had to change the file name by hand. So I converted the macro to code using tools-->references. The converted macro included the following statement: DoCmd.OutputTo acQuery, "qselLabelsBloodLog_output", "MicrosoftExcelBiff8(*.xls)", "S:\susan_cheree\lb041129.xls", True, "", 0

Hi, I am trying to gather stats about how many times a resource in our web app is viewed, i.e. just a COUNT. There are potentially millions of resources within the system.

I think I'm seeing table-level lock contention in the following function when I have many different concurrent callers, each with mutually distinct values for $1. Is there a way to reimplement this function using select-for-update (or equivalent) in order to get a row-level lock (and thus less contention) while maintaining the function interface? The docs seem to suggest so, but it's not clear how to return the SETOF queued_item and also...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
