Another thing you can do is click the search tab. Here you can perform a search. Let's say the doctor in our example database gets a new partner who is a pediatrician. He will no longer be seeing children, so anyone under 12 needs to be removed from the database. You can preform a search for an age less than 12 from this search screen. All the results are now displayed in the browse format where you can delete individual records with the red X, or check multiple records and click the red X at the bottom of the screen.
Removing data by searching from a query window or command line is very easy, but please be careful:
DELETE FROM people WHERE age < 12
If the table is no longer needed you can remove the entire table by clicking on the "Drop" tab in phpMyAdmin or running this line:
DROP TABLE people
