# Table

First, select a table to delete rows from. This can be done either by selecting a table from the pick list, or toggle the input to text mode and type the full table name.

# WHERE condition

Next, provide a WHERE condition to select rows to be deleted. This condition can be as simple as filtering a single record to delete based on ID.

id = 5

Alternatively, it can be used to delete multiple rows.

status = 'closed'

Complex WHERE conditions with subqueries can also be used. Refer to the WHERE condition guide for more information.
