Understand with Example
The Tutorial illustrates an example from Drop Table in Database. In this tutorial we show you a table created in database using show tables.
Now we create another table 'student information'. The insert statement is used to add the record to the table 'student information'.
The select statement is used to retrieve the record from the table 'student information'.
The show tables show you the list of table available in database.
The drop statement is used to delete a table from database.
Once the table is deleted using drop statement, the table is no longer to be shown in the database. When we write show tables, this will show you the table available in database.
