I've got a Holidays table with several entries in, including Employee number, holiday date etc.
I've also got an Employee table with a record for each person, including Full Name, Holiday Group etc.

I've created a view using the above tables which shows all holidays on a particular date for certain holiday groups(I've had to bring in the employee table as I need the Holiday Group)

I would like the delete the rows this view creates, but I can't just delete them from the view as this will try to delete from the employee table.

What syntax do I need for this please ?

It is not clear what you want. You created a view to return a certain set of records. Now you want to delete them?

Be more specific about what you want to "delete". (I think you just want a where clause, or perhaps a GROUP BY to restrict the amount of records to return.

You might also add DISTINCT (Select DISTINCT )

Poor planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.

Please Ignore this - it is now resolved.
