Define 'its not working'.because it certainly appears to do the job where I sit:

SQL> select count(*)
  2 from gen_api_performance_daily
  3 where statistics_date < add_months(sysdate, -3)   4 /

  COUNT(*)


      1000

SQL> delete from gen_api_performance_daily   2 where statistics_date < add_months(sysdate,-3);

1000 rows deleted.

A similar statement would do the job:

SQL> insert into gen_api_performance_daily   2 select add_months(statistics_date, -24), statistics_year - 2   3 from gen_api_performance_daily;

3000 rows created.

Commit complete.

SQL> delete from gen_api_performance_daily   2 where statistics_year = to_number(to_char(add_months(sysdate, -24), 'RRRR'))
  3 /

3000 rows deleted.
