Sometimes we may decide that we need to get rid of a table in the database for some reason. In fact, it would be problematic if we cannot do so because this could create a maintenance nightmare for the DBAs. Fortunately, SQL allows us to do it, as we can use the DROP TABLE command. The syntax for DROP TABLE is
DROP TABLE "table_name"
So, if we wanted to drop the table called a customer that we created in the last section, we simply type
DROP TABLE customer.
