You will probably need to create a stored procedure and use MODIFY/NEXT logic to delete the records. But you will want to run the stored procedure as part of a flow in order to get a log of the results. Your delete logic might look something like this:
MODIFY FILE <filename>
NEXT <column name>
ON NEXT IF <negative of your selection criteria for deleting> GOTO TOP ;
ON NEXT DELETE
ON NONEXT GOTO EXIT

I would worry about performance with the check each record/looping approach. I think the phrase "when doing database things, use a database tool" is a good phrase to live by. I would go the DBMS SQL route. Your "parsing error" might have been just some bad SQL. Send your delete statement. Set based deleting from tables (and adding/modifying) is what DBs are made for.
