Hi All

I would like to Erase (Drop) a Table from a Database and I am using the following command:

cmd.CommandText="Drop Table If Exists " & Main.Job & ".HorPi"
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery

Main.Job is the name of the Database and
.HorPi is the name of the Table

But it does not work!!:(:confused::sign0148:

Please help:sign0085:

TRY THIS:
cmd.CommandText="Drop Table If Exists '" & Main.Job & "'.'HorPi'"
NOTE THE SINGLE QUOTES IN THE STATEMENTS

Hi Cableguy

Thanks for the help, but it does not work!:sign0148::(

Here is the complete routine:

Sub ImportDesign_Click
WaitCursor(True)
OpenDialog1.Filter = "CVS Files|*.csv"
OpenDialog1.Show
If OpenDialog1.File<>"" Then
If RadioBtn1.Checked=True Then
'Hor Pi
cmd.CommandText="Drop Table If Exists '" & Main.Job & "'.'HorPi'"
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery
Table2.LoadCSV (OpenDialog1.File, ",", True, True)
Con.CreateSQLTable ("Table2","HorPi")
End If
End If
WaitCursor(False)
Erase.Close
End Sub

Do you see anything wrong?:sign0085:

Hi Erel

Job.main is a variable. It can be any Job name that you opened, or selected to import data to that you first have to delete before importing the new data.

For testing comands I use one litle app called sql administrator
Have a copy of you databas and use it as testground for comands...

One thing about you issue, are you sure you have thecorrect JOB connection opened?
