Purpose

Drops the definition of a specified view from the Data Dictionary.

When you drop a view, the system:

  • Sets an EXCLUSIVE lock on the view.
  • Frees the disk space used by the dropped view and any fallback copy.
  • Removes any explicit access privileges on the object.
  • Removes the metadata for the dropped object from the data dictionary. This includes dropping any statistics collected on the view from DBC.StatsTbl.

Required Privileges

You must have the appropriate DROP privilege on the specified view.
