    I'm running a query off of a linked table and it is duplicating 112 records. I've run the query to find them already now I want to delete them. The "Delete" key under the Records tab is inactive and therefore doesn't allow deletion. I'm assumming it's because it is running off of linked table. Is there a way around this?

    sylnz, welcome to the Forum.
    Have you tried creating a Delete query using the Duplicates query as it's data source?
