You can use the DROP TABLE statement to delete a table.

Syntax

DROP [TEMPORARY] TABLE [IF EXISTS]
    tbl_name [, tbl_name] ...
    [RESTRICT | CASCADE]
Note The syntax that is used to delete aPolarDB-X PolarDB-X database table is the same as the syntax that is used to delete a MySQL database table. The system automatically deletes the physical table that corresponds to the deleted table at the same time. For more information, see DROP TABLE Statement.

Note

  • When you delete a table that contains a global secondary index, the index table is deleted at the same time.
  • You cannot use the DROP TABLE statement to delete an index table of a table. To delete an index, use the ALTER TABLE DROP INDEX statement.

Examples

Use the following statement to delete a table that is named user_log:

DROP TABLE user_log;
