In this article, we would like to show you how to DROP TABLE IF EXISTS in MS SQL Server.

Quick solution:

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS [table_name];

Practical example

In this example, we will delete the users table.

Query:

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS [users];

Output:

MS SQL Server - DROP TABLE IF EXISTS result in HeidiSQL (before)
MS SQL Server - DROP TABLE IF EXISTS result in HeidiSQL (before)
MS SQL Server - DROP TABLE IF EXISTS result in HeidiSQL (after)
MS SQL Server - DROP TABLE IF EXISTS result in HeidiSQL (after)

 

Database preparation

create_tables.sql file:

CREATE TABLE [users] (
	[id] INT IDENTITY(1,1),
	[name] VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
	[surname] VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
	[department_id] INT,
    [salary] DECIMAL(15,2) NOT NULL,
	PRIMARY KEY ([id])
);
