Obviously, an Empty command should be used (for speed, etc), unless the 
deleted records are still needed in the Deleted table?

I'd guess I've never used that syntax, but I have often used the 
Delete-Query, to delete SOME of the records, and, of course, that might 
sometimes result in deleting ALL the records, if they all matched the 
selection parms.
