If you want to delete an existing table and its data rows, you can use the "DROP TABLE" statement as shown in the tutorial script below:

SELECT * FROM tipBackup
GO
id  subject    description              create_date

DROP TABLE tipBackup
GO

SELECT * FROM tipBackup
GO
Msg 208, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Invalid object name 'tipBackup'.

Be careful, when you use the "DROP TABLE" statement. All data rows are gone too.
