MySQL - Drop Database
DROP TABLE in MySQL statement allows you to remove or delete a table from the MySQL database.
DROP TABLE table_name;
However, the full syntax for the MySQL DROP TABLE statement is:
DROP [ TEMPORARY ] TABLE [ IF EXISTS ] table_name1, table_name2, ... [ RESTRICT | CASCADE ];
Note : If you use the MySQL DROP TABLE statement to drop one or more tables that do not exist, the database will raise an error (unless you specify the IF EXISTS parameter in the DROP TABLE statement).
Let's look at an example that shows how to drop a table using the MySQL DROP TABLE statement.
Drop One Table :
First, let's look at a simple DROP TABLE example that shows how to use the DROP TABLE statement to drop one table in MySQL.
DROP TABLE customers;
As a result,Customers table gets deleted.
Let's look at an example where we want to drop more than one table using the DROP TABLE statement:
DROP TABLE customers, suppliers;
This DROP TABLE statement example would delete two tables - customers and suppliers. If we were worried that one of the tables doesn't exist and we don't want to raise an error, we could modify our DROP TABLE statement as follows:
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS customers, suppliers;
This example would delete the customers and suppliers tables and would not raise an error if one of the tables didn't exist.
Finally, let's look at an example that shows how to use the DROP TABLE statement to drop a temporary table.
DROP TEMPORARY TABLE IF EXISTS customers;
This DROP TABLE example will only delete the temporary table called customers. If there was also a permanent table called customers, this DROP TABLE statement would not delete it because TEMPORARY is specified.
