Hi all,

I need to delete from file A all the records that are matched to file B (via a unique key field), but only those where a field on the file B contains a specific value (Batch Number = 1060).

I started off with a select statement to make sure I target the right records.
The following works fine:

select T6C8N1 from PPRPTEST/BBT6CPP as DCL
inner join PPRPTEST/BFEYCPP as RF
on DCL.T6C8N1 = RF.EYG9N2
where RF.EYHDN2 = 1060

I replaced the select with a delete:

delete from PPRPTEST/BBT6CPP as DCL
inner join PPRPTEST/BFEYCPP as RF
on DCL.T6C8N1 = RF.EYG9N2
where RF.EYHDN2 = 1060

This issues error: Keyword INNER not expected. Valid tokens: <END-OF-STATEMENT>.

I tried without the aliases, but I get the same error.

What am I missing?

TIA
