I want to delete records from one table that meet certain criteria from more than one table.
where field.table_1 =....
and field.table_2 = ....
I'm afraid to have "from table_1, table_2" because I don't want to delete anything from table 2, only table 1.
I was successfully able to select all the data I wanted to delete, now I just need to delete them. Is there I way I can modify that successful SELECT table by inserting a line or two?
Thank you so much for your help.

Something like this:
DELETE FROM t1
FROM table1 AS t1
INNER JOIN table2 AS t2
ON t1.field1 = t2.field2
AND t1.field3 = ...
