I am trying to use WITH statement and DELETE together. But I get ORA-00928 error. Basically my code is like following
WITH TO_DELETE AS ( SELECT TableKey FROM SOME_TABLE WHERE SomeConditions LIKE '%' ) DELETE FROM TO_DELETE -- SELECT * FROM TO_DELETE
This code works in SQL Server 2005+ but gives error in Oracle. Any idea how can I solve this problem?
Following workaround exists.
- use temp table and drop it.
use following inner select construct.
DELETE FROM ( SELECT TableKey FROM SOME_TABLE WHERE SomeConditions LIKE '%' )
What I wish to know is there any way using WITH statement?
