KNIME Base Nodes version 4.2.2.v202009241438 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

This node is part of the legacy database framework. For more information on how to migrate to the new database framework see the migration section of the database documentation.

This node takes a database connection as input and allows to drop a table within the database described by the incoming database JDBC connection.


Table name
The name of the table to drop.
Select this option to drop the table even if it is referenced by other objects in the database e.g. foreign key references or views. The option is ignored if it is not supported by the database e.g. DB2, Hive, Impala or SQLite.

WARNING: Depending on the database this might drop dependent objects e.g. views and constraints!

Fail if table does not exist
Select this option to have the node fail if the table does not exist in the database. If this option is not selected the node executes successfully even if the table did not exist in the database.

Input Ports
