Deleting from a list.

Hi;

I am still improving my sql/tsql skills.

I was wondering if someone could give me some advice on how to do some
high powered deletes.

I have two tables, A and B.

"A" is the table I want to delete records from.

"B" is a table where each record is 4 keys ( fields ) that I want to
match with one or more records in "A" to remove.

Could I accomplish this with something like
delete from A ( select .... from B ) ?

Hi

Books online should be the first option when wanting to find out information
regarding syntax etc. and example D on the delete definition page gives you
exactly what you want.
