DROP VIEW VIEW_EMPLOYEE_DTL; 

Drop Sequence:

DROP SEQUENCE SEQ_EMPLOYEE_DTL; 

Drop Trigger:

DROP TRIGGER TRG_SEQ_EMPLOYEE_DTL; 

Drop Table:

DROP TABLE EMPLOYEE_DTL; 

Drop Table with Cascading Option:

In our example tables, try to drop tables GENDER_LKP, and DEPARTMENT_LKP after the data is loaded into GENDER_LKP, DEPARTMENT_LKP, and EMPLOYEE_DTL. You will get an error message.

If you want to drop parent tables that are connected with child tables, then you can use the following command.

DROP TABLE GENDER_LKP CASCADE CONSTRAINTS;

DROP TABLE DEPARTMENT_LKP CASCADE CONSTRAINTS;
