NAME

       DROP SEQUENCE - remove a sequence

SYNOPSIS

       DROP SEQUENCE [ IF EXISTS ] name [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP SEQUENCE removes sequence number generators.

PARAMETERS

       IF EXISTS
              Do  not  throw an error if the sequence does not exist. A notice
              is issued in this case.

       name   The name (optionally schema-qualified) of a sequence.

       CASCADE
              Automatically drop objects that depend on the sequence.

       RESTRICT
              Refuse to drop the sequence if any objects depend on it. This is
              the default.

EXAMPLES

       To remove the sequence serial:

       DROP SEQUENCE serial;

COMPATIBILITY

       DROP  SEQUENCE  conforms  to the SQL standard, except that the standard
       only allows one sequence to be dropped per command, and apart from  the
       IF EXISTS option, which is a PostgreSQL extension.
