I have 10 tables in which i want to schedule a job that will delete records from all the 10 tables based on one condition.

Say, select cnt_id, per_id from table A
where user_id=x and country_id=y;

Now, I have to delete table 1 to table 10 based on cnt_id and per_id selected from the above query.

Is it a good ideal to run a job that deletes from all the 10 tables everyday or is there anyother way that i can do this?

Oracle doesn't support mutliple table delete, some open source db like mysql supports it.
if tables are parent table and children tables, then you can use delete cascade.
