PHP MSSQL - How To Drop an Existing Table?

If you need to delete a table created before, you can run the DROP TABLE SQL statement using the mssql_query() function, as shown in the following sample script:

<?php
  $con = mssql_connect('LOCALHOST','sa','FYIcenter');
  mssql_select_db('FyiCenterData', $con);

  # dropping an existing table
  $sql = "DROP TABLE fyi_links";
  $res = mssql_query($sql,$con);
  print("Table fyi_links dropped.\n");

  # creating a new table
  $sql = "CREATE TABLE fyi_links ("
      . " id INT NOT NULL" 
      . ", url VARCHAR(80) NOT NULL"
      . ", notes VARCHAR(1024)"
      . ", counts INT"
      . ", time DATETIME"
      . ")";
  $res = mssql_query($sql,$con);
  print("Table fyi_links created.\n");

  mssql_close($con); 
?>

If you run this script, "fyi_links" will be dropped and created again:

Table fyi_links dropped.
Table fyi_links created.
