Deleting Tables

Deleting Tables

Question:
Is there a SQL statement for deleting tables like there is for deleting data from tables? Something like:DELETE TABLE NAME or DROP TABLE NAME

Answer:
Yes indeed, Drop table

will do it. You need to know that if the table you are trying to drop has a relationship depending on where it is supplying its primary key as a foreign key into some other table, you may not be allowed to drop it without dropping the dependent table first.
