CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Delete rows in a table.


Deletion should include using the following syntax:

DELETE FROM [table name]
WHERE clause

In addition, omitting the WHERE clause will delete all rows in a table. The INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE commands are part of the DML. This group of commands is not automatically committed to the database and stays in the buffer until a COMMIT occurs. A COMMIT can occur by

  • typing a DML (or autocommit command)
  • typing the keyword COMMIT
  • gracefully exiting the database by typing the word EXIT
  • selecting auto commit in Application Express.

If an unwanted delete is made, the keyword ROLLBACK can be typed and the buffer will be cleared of any commands it contains.
