MYSQL DROP table statement removes the complete data with structure.
- DROP TABLE table_name;
This example specifies how to drop a table. In this example, we are dropping the table “cus_tbl”.
- DROP TABLE cus_tbl;
MySQL TRUNCATE Table vs DROP Table
You can also use DROP TABLE command to delete complete table but it will remove complete table data and structure both. You need to re-create the table again if you have to store some data. But in the case of TRUNCATE TABLE, it removes only table data not structure. You don’t need to re-create the table again because the table structure already exists.
