MySQL database table creation

Do you need to create a table in MySQL? We show you how to do it with a small example.

Create a Table

We will create a table with an auto-increment field that will be used as primary key, an alphanumeric field and a date field.

CREATE TABLE sample (
id_sample INT(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
Name VARCHAR(45) DEFAULT NULL,
singup_date DATE DEFAULT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (id_sample)
);

Drop a Table

If we want to remove a table we use DROP TABLE, in this case “sample” table.

DROP TABLE sample;
