database_name
Name of the containing database for user_defined_type_name.
This is always SYSUDTLIB.
user_defined_type_name
Name of the user-defined type, whether ARRAY/VARRAY, distinct, or structured, whose definition is to be dropped from the dictionary.
Before you drop a UDT, you must ensure that you resolve any dependencies that exist on it. You can execute the system macro SYSUDTLIB.HelpDependencies to find any existing dependencies for a type you intend to drop.
