Drop column from a table

Question:
How can I drop a column from a table? Is there any way to do it without recreating the table? The table in question has several dependencies that I may will lose if I rename it. I am using SQL 6.5.

Answer:
Sorry, you must be using version 7 to be able to drop a column in a table. So, yes, if you have foreign keys, you must first use the alter table statement on the tables affected to get rid of the relationship, drop and rebuild the table, and then recreate the relationship with another alter table.
