NAME

       DROP_FOREIGN_TABLE - remove a foreign table

SYNOPSIS

       DROP FOREIGN TABLE [ IF EXISTS ] name [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP FOREIGN TABLE removes a foreign table. Only the owner of a foreign
       table can remove it.

PARAMETERS

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

       name
           The name (optionally schema-qualified) of the foreign table to
           drop.

       CASCADE
           Automatically drop objects that depend on the foreign table (such
           as views).

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

EXAMPLES

       To destroy two foreign tables, films and distributors:

           DROP FOREIGN TABLE films, distributors;

COMPATIBILITY

       This command conforms to the ISO/IEC 9075-9 (SQL/MED), except that the
       standard only allows one foreign table to be dropped per command, and
       apart from the IF EXISTS option, which is a PostgreSQL extension.
