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 = "URI=C:\myfolder;";
using (SASDataSetsConnection connection = new SASDataSetsConnection(connectionString)) {
  int rowsAffected;
  SASDataSetsCommand cmd = new SASDataSetsCommand("DELETE FROM Account WHERE Id = @myId", connection);
  cmd.Parameters.Add(new SASDataSetsParameter("myId","1"));
  rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();


Dim connectionString As [String] = "URI=C:\myfolder;"
Using connection As New SASDataSetsConnection(connectionString)
  Dim rowsAffected As Integer
  Dim cmd As New SASDataSetsCommand("DELETE FROM Account WHERE Id = @myId", connection)
  cmd.Parameters.Add(New SASDataSetsParameter("myId", "1"))
  rowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
End Using
