I am trying to delete a record from one of the tables. In sqlplus I issue the following command and get the following error:

SQL> del from idps where employee_id='BENXXX';
SP2-0224: invalid starting line number

There isnt much explanation about this error in the Oracle help files. Cant make any heads or tails out of it myself either. I tried it with another employee and still get the same error. Will appreciate very much if you can crack this mystery.

DEL is not a sql command. Use DELETE instead.
