Dropping Metadata

Go Up to Working with Data Definition Statements

SQL supports several statements for deleting existing metadata:

  • DROP TABLE, to delete a table from a database
  • DROP VIEW, to delete a view definition from a database
  • DROP INDEX, to delete a database index
  • ALTER TABLE, to delete columns from a table

For more information about deleting columns with ALTER TABLE, see Altering a Table.
