Drop regular views

You can drop a regular view in both Sybase Central and Interactive SQL.

If you drop a regular view that has dependent views, then the dependent views are made INVALID as part of the drop operation. The dependent views are not usable until they are changed or the original dropped view is recreated. See Alter regular views.

To determine whether a regular view has dependent views, use the sa_dependent_views system procedure. See sa_dependent_views system procedure.

For information about regular views are impacted by changes to their underlying objects, see View dependencies.
