Oracle DELETE Statement

In Oracle, DELETE statement is used to remove or delete a single record or multiple records from a table.


  1. DELETE FROM table_name  
  2. WHERE conditions;   



1) table_name: It specifies the table which you want to delete.

2) conditions: It specifies the conditions that must met for the records to be deleted.

Oracle Delete Example: On one condition

  2. WHERE name = 'Sohan';    


This statement will delete all records from the customer table where name is "Sohan".

Oracle Delete Example: On multiple conditions

  1. DELETE FROM customers  
  2. WHERE last_name = 'Maurya'  
  3. AND customer_id > 2;  


This statement will delete all records from the customers table where the last_name is "Maurya" and the customer_id is greater than 2.
