DROP PROCEDURE

Removes a single stored procedure from the specified database.

Syntax

DROP PROCEDURE [IF EXISTS] { procedure_name | database_name.procedure_name }

Remarks

Only one stored procedure can be removed using the DROP PROCEDURE command.

If DROP PROCEDURE is executed for a procedure that does not exist, the following error will occur:

memsql> DROP PROCEDURE myprocedure;
ERROR 1998 (HY000): Function 'db1.myprocedure' doesn't exist

However, if the IF EXISTS condition is used and the procedure does not exist, no error will occur:

memsql> DROP PROCEDURE IF EXISTS myprocedure;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Examples

Dropping a Procedure in the Current Database

The following example removes an existing function from the current database.

memsql> SHOW FUNCTIONS;
+------------------+------------------+
| Functions_in_db1 | Function Type    |
+------------------+------------------+
| myprocedure      | Stored Procedure |
+------------------+------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

memsql> DROP PROCEDURE myprocedure;

memsql> SHOW FUNCTIONS;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.07 sec)

Dropping a Procedure in Another Database

The following example removes an existing stored procedure while connected to another database in your MemSQL cluster.

memsql> USE db1;

| myprocedure      | Stored Procedure |
+------------------+------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

memsql> USE db2;

memsql> DROP PROCEDURE db1.myprocedure;
