I am trying to drop a view dynamically from MS access Database but the below syntax is giving incorrect syntax error.

I am using Drop view <view Name>.
Can anybody suggest what is the way to delete a view.

According to MSDN, the 2007 version knows the drop view syntax.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb177897(v=office.12).aspxThere are other people who reported the same issue, and solved it by using "DROP TABLE <viewname>"

We can help you better if you give us the exact error message.

The exact error message is "Syntax error in Drop Table or Drop Index"

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
