Write a query.
But seriously, there isn't enough information to here to make a proper
response. I guess you want to check if a particular record exists and if it
does take some action....
DELETE * FROM orders
WHERE EXISTS (SELECT bad_supplier.id FROM bad_supplier
....In which you can't - MySQL didn't support sub-queries last time I
checked. You need to use a programming language to retreive a set of values
then generate a query for each element of the set to get your result.
Unless....you really want to do a join e.g.
SELECT orders.number from orders, order_lines
GROUP BY orders.number;
- this would give you the order numbers for orders which include 'furby'
from a badly designed schema.
