select + delete in single query , how to ?i am managing to code a delete query so i can delete some selected entries form table which got from another select query .
situation like this
i want to delete all the common value contained row for a particular field .
so i asked for help
and i got that i can write it by a query where i can compare same field 's value to same field's other value in same table . query is as below
SELECT a.name, a.id AS idmain, b.id AS idsecond FROM `users` AS a, `users` AS b WHERE a.name = b.name AND a.id <> b.id AND a.id < b.id order by a.id
it give me all rows which have same value for users(tablename) 's name (field)
now i want to delete it which most recent . want to keep old one .
i know i can do it with separate query but i want to do it with single query where delete + above select query
is that possible to join delete and other select so that we can use select query 's result to delete row ?
