[Access] Delete & Update SQL in Jet

Discussion in newsgroups remembered me a old Jet trick. Say you made a join on 2 tables and want to delete records from one. In TSQL you can explicit specify this as:

Delete From Table1
From Table1 inner join Table2

But in jet this will not work. What you have to do - is to specify table you want to delete using DISTINCTROW keyword:

Delete DISTINCTROW Table1.* From Table1 inner join Table2

Good explanation together with links to Microsoft KB is here: http://www.mvps.org/access/queries/qry0022.htm
