DELETE Statements

To delete information from a table, use DELETE statements.


The DELETE statement requires the table name in the FROM clause and the row's primary key in the WHERE clause, as shown in the following example:

<delete_statement> ::= DELETE FROM <table_name> WHERE { Id = <expression> } [ { AND | OR } ... ]

<expression> ::=
  | @ <parameter> 
  | ?
  | <literal>

You can use the ExecuteNonQuery method to execute data manipulation commands and retrieve the number of affected rows, as shown in the following example:


String connectionString = "URL=;User=username;Password=password;CustomService=servicename;";
using (SAPByDesignConnection connection = new SAPByDesignConnection(connectionString)) {
  int rowsAffected;
  SAPByDesignCommand cmd = new SAPByDesignCommand("DELETE FROM Account WHERE Id = @myId", connection);
  cmd.Parameters.Add(new SAPByDesignParameter("myId","1"));
  rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();


Dim connectionString As [String] = "URL=;User=username;Password=password;CustomService=servicename;"
Using connection As New SAPByDesignConnection(connectionString)
  Dim rowsAffected As Integer
  Dim cmd As New SAPByDesignCommand("DELETE FROM Account WHERE Id = @myId", connection)
  cmd.Parameters.Add(New SAPByDesignParameter("myId", "1"))
  rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
End Using
