If you want to remove a row from a table, you can use the DELETE statement with a WHERE clause to identify the row. The following sample script deletes one row:

<?php
  $con = mssql_connect('LOCALHOST','sa','FYIcenter');
  mssql_select_db('FyiCenterData', $con);

  $sql = "DELETE FROM fyi_links WHERE id = 1102";
  $res = mssql_query($sql,$con);
  if (!$res) {
    print("SQL statement failed with error:\n");
    print("   ".mssql_get_last_message()."\n");
  } else {
    $number_of_rows = mssql_rows_affected($con);
    print("$number_of_rows rows deleted.\n");
  }
  
  mssql_close($con); 
?>

If you run this script, you will get something like this:

1 rows deleted.

If you run it again, no rows will be deleted. And you will get something like this:

0 rows deleted.
