    Angry * deleting multiple rows from a table * help!!!

    Ok, so the assignment is to delete rows in a table that consist of employee ids 202 - 205



    I input the following code:


    delete from sec0412_foods
    where employee_id between '202'
    and '205';



    And then I come across this error:

    Where am I making a mistake? I am just a beginner and I'm bleeding out my nose here trying to force my brain to get it but no!

    Code:
    Delete sec0412_foods.employee_id
    FROM sec0412_foods
    WHERE (((sec0412_foods.employee_id) Between "202" and "205"));
    Look here to make sure you understand the syntax for delete queries.

    Hey, btw it's fine you don't need to do anything I've found my way through it

    The code has to look like this

    delete *
    fromsec0412_employees
    where employee_idbetween 202 and 205;

    Thank you again !
