Hi! My idea seems like the one justsomeguy told.U run a query to select the max id, and another one to delete all the others less than the max id.I mean something like:1st query

$max=mysql_query("SELECT MAX(id_column_name) AS max_id FROM table_name WHERE column_name=$value");   $maxi=mysql_fetch_array($max);  $big=$maxi['max_id'];

2nd query

mysql_query("DELETE FROM table_name WHERE column_name=$value AND id_column_name < $big ");

I hope this can help u!
