NAME

       DROP CAST - remove a cast

SYNOPSIS

       DROP CAST [ IF EXISTS ] (sourcetype AS targettype) [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP CAST removes a previously defined cast.

       To  be able to drop a cast, you must own the source or the target data type. These are the
       same privileges that are required to create a cast.

PARAMETERS

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

       sourcetype
              The name of the source data type of the cast.

       targettype
              The name of the target data type of the cast.

       CASCADE

       RESTRICT
              These key words do not have any effect, since there are no dependencies on casts.

EXAMPLES

       To drop the cast from type text to type int:

       DROP CAST (text AS int);

COMPATIBILITY

       The DROP CAST command conforms to the SQL standard.
