you could try running a delete query to remove the data


strQueryDelete = "DELETE [columnName] FROM [tableName] WHERE [columnName]=" & txtCustID & ";"

then just run the query in code with a button click handler.

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

As a DBA, I might also suggest using a procedure like an API that deletes the data-- that way you can code in some intellegence into the delete on the database side.

Just a thought.

The previous example would also work, of course. But you might have to check for dependant relationships (parent/child) etc that might cause errors.
