I would like to delete a row inside a mysql table. To find out which rows are affected the system has to check another table.
Somehow I am doing this statement wrong and I cant find out why. Does anybody see the error?
Thanx for any help on that.
DELETE FROM $table1 pi RIGHT JOIN $table2 AS p ON p.ID = pi.product_id WHERE p.owner_id = '15173'
1. You're using MySQL 4, right?
2. Echo your query to the screen when you're having trouble. Ensure you really have a value for $table1, $table2, etc.
3. Try this format:
DELETE $table1 FROM $table1 pi, $table2 p WHERE p.ID = pi.product_id AND p.owner_id = '15173'
4. If you're still having trouble, what does mysql_error() say after you execute the query?
