I have over 740 million records in a table and I need to delete all records with two field values. I can’t find a way to do it automatically and of course manual makes no sense at all. Is there any way I can do this?

    it's likely to take many hours

    Perhaps an sql like this ...

    Delete from myfile where myfield in ('VAL1','VAL2')
